Mettler Toledo PMMI CI Vision Hands On Training
Mettler-Toledo CI-Vision has established the CI-Vision Vision Institute (CVI) to help its customers optimize the benefits they receive from investing in CI-Vision machine vision systems. Trainers certified by the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI) provide both classroom and hands-on training in the basic technology, effective application and proper maintenance of CI-Vision machine vision inspection systems.

The CI-Vision Institute is directed by Troy Farkas, who has more than 18 years of experience in the packaging industry with an extensive background in molding, machinery and plastics. He is a PMMI-certified trainer as well as engineer.

Courses are designed for students with varying levels of experience and skill, ranging from production line operators/users to specialists/tuners and experts/trainers. CVI also works closely with customers to design customized specialized training to meet their specific needs.

Training is conducted at the Mettler-Toledo CI-Vision facility in Aurora, IL (suburban Chicago) and each course generally lasts three days. Class size is usually 6-8 participants, which allows for maximum contact with the instructor and plenty of hands-on experience. Larger companies that may have multiple inspection setups and/or a large operator staff can arrange for training at their own facilities.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
