Jul. 27, 2016School is NOT out for summer!

At HPM, we believe in continuous improvement in everything we do. Which is why 12 years ago, we began offering Blueprint Reading classes to our employees.
Going on right now at HPM, we have 8 employees that meet once a week under the tutelage of one of our veteran account managers to learn the basics of Blueprint Reading. According to Craig, the class instructor, the biggest benefits that are gained by our staff during this class are:
1. How to visualize the part to be made.
2. How to understand different types of tolerances.
3. How the tolerances apply to the part being manufactured.
"It really turns the light on for our employees as to how to prioritize tolerances," said Craig, "which I think is a very important skill for them to have."
Other topics covered in the class include Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T); Lines and Views; Dimensions; and much more.
"I loved the class because of how much I learned about tolerances," comments Robert from our Press Brake department. "The information was so relevant for what I do on a day to day basis."
Another really nice feature about the class -- HPM offers this class to our customers AT NO CHARGE! That's right -- if you have engineers, designers, or supply chain staff who could use a refresher on how to read blueprints, HPM welcomes you to take a class with us.
