Local Jasper, IN Boy Scout Toop #185 recently visited Thermwood to learn about how CNC Routers work.
The scouts took a tour of the factory and then watched machining demonstrations on both the Model 45 and Model 43. Each scout was able to take home a personalized Boy Scout emblem puzzle as well as a plaque with their name on it.

When you purchase a CNC Router from Thermwood, a five-day comprehensive programming/operation training course for two students is included. This course is conducted at Thermwood's state of the art Dale, IN facility.
Superior Factory Training:
Training at Thermwood is conducted in a modern, comfortable and well equipped center devoted specifically to educating our customers. This is, by far, the fastest and most efficient way to learn. Over the years, Thermwood has experienced the ups and downs of training at the customer's facility, the interruptions and distractions, not to mention the lack of classroom facilities and equipment. It just doesn’t work very well. At Thermwood, the atmosphere contributes to the learning experience. Each classroom is setup specifically for the course being taught.
Our machine operator/programmer courses are located adjacent to the machine training lab, where students complete the prescribed projects on a specific training machine utilized only for training purposes. Our application software classes are conducted in a classroom with state-of-art computer equipment. Then when it comes time for practical applications on a full sized machine, Thermwood's training lab is equipped with a CabinetShop 45 outfitted with all major options and features. Real production type parts are cut. What a confidence builder!
Customer Training Lounge:
