Training and education
The PCMI has become widely recognised for running training and educational events for production and supervisory personnel involved in PCM. Non members and members are provided with invaluable information on the photo chemical machining (PCM) process and the underlining chemistry that supports it.
Tailored consulting services can be arranged by members at their own facilities. These services are provided by Cranfield University professors, who specialize in PCM technology and are recognised worldwide for their experience and expertise.
The courses aims to improve business profitability by helping you and your staff realise costs savings, reduce production times and increase capacity by managing better process control, whilst complying with the latest environmental legislations.
Courses give attendees from apprentices through to senior level personnel, the opportunity to openly discuss their experiences with their peers and talk through any challenges they are facing.
Course content is largely practical, and is frequently taught in a laboratory where attendees get hands on experience, focusing on the practical application of the PCM process.
Recent conferences have taken place at Cranfield University in England, or internationally, following PCMI’s conferences. Events can also be held onsite at members’ facilities.
Courses and are taught by graduate level professors.
Supporting industry developments and change
The PCMI proactively support the continual development and refinement of the PCM process via member consortiums. These consortiums run research and development projects to improve technical knowledge and understanding around the process, and subsequently work with members to share new technologies and techniques.
