The Additive Minds Academy has launched its first extended reality app for the EOS M290 system, which aims at replacing on-site training.
The EOS education provider for the additive manufacturing industry said the new basic training app will enable existing and new employees to learn about EOS systems faster, from anywhere, and even before delivery, creating cost savings for companies.
The app looks at teaching application specialists how to operate the EOS systems and software, as well as equipping them with the skills to advise customers and stakeholders.
Additive Minds said that extended reality technologies continue to transform education, and contribute to the best possible learning outcomes when used correctly.
The basic training app was, therefore, developed to allow users to familiarise themselves with the main system components by interacting with a full-size model of EOS M290.
Additive Minds claimed that the EOS M290 basic learning app, together with the blended learning paths, has drastically reduced onboarding times for employees to learn how to use the system from several months to four to six weeks.
This first distance learning course for the EOS M290 system is available in the Additive Minds Academy store for Apple and Android.
“Industrial 3D printing offers companies immense potential in the development of new applications,” said AM Academy manager Volker Kunze.
“Especially for newcomers, it is important to build up know-how quickly. EOS is committed to offering the best learning experience, with state-of-the-art learning methods that are engaging and fun to use, smart and available anytime, anywhere.”
“The app can reduce operator training to just two or three days, at the same time decoupling training from machine availability on-site,” he went on.
“As such, a company can use the waiting time effectively by starting training before the new system arrives.”
