Insight, oversight and ready-to-use knowledge. Improve your system architecture with SPiiPlus. As a high-tech machine developer, you want to level up your motion control expertise. PI’s SPiiPlus training for ACS’ MMI software will get you up to speed. After two days, you can independently mobilize ACS MMI in the best way possible and make your machines and systems run flawlessly. Time to get going.
ACS as a starting point. Your systems run smoothly
SPiiPlus MMI functions as the interface between human and machine. And after this training, you’ll know exactly how to work with it. Whether you’re an ACS novice or an advanced user, Ankit Khanore will teach you the ins and outs.
What can you expect of the ACS Basic training?
A two-day, all-round ACS training that will get you up to speed. Little to no prior knowledge required.
One-on-one training or in a group – it’s up to you.
Sessions for entry-level as well as for more advanced participants. A combination of both is also possible.
On-site sessions. PI will provide the course material.
Costs: € 2500,- for a two-day session (excluding travel, lunch and location costs)
Maximum number of participants: 6
Price for the session includes: Training material (from handbooks to binders, and from pens to USB sticks)
The next steps after the ACS Basic course? Improve your business case and gain complete control
You’ll save time and costs, and improve your business case. You don’t have to gather the product-specific knowledge yourself. That time is surely better used for other things!
After the training, you know how ACS can function as the base of your whole system. You enable your machines to run entirely on the software. This way you gain end-to-end control.
Our MMI training is delivered to you by an engineer with experience in the field. Specialized in dynamics and control, Ankit knows the nuts and bolts of your specific questions and will remain available afterwards to help out.
“Yes, you may already be skilled in using a clever back-office program to make your machines run well. And maybe you even already use ACS as part of your system. But did you know that ACS can also function as the master of your systems? With the basic training, you get a head start!”
– Ankit Khanore, application engineer
