Swiss machinery company Sidel Group has opened a new training center in Guadalajara, Mexico, featuring a virtual factory environment, augmented reality and authentic parts that trainees can handle themselves.

The new facility, which brings Sidel’s training centers to seven, has been developed to meet local customer needs.

“We know that our customers have high expectations, so the first step was to conduct extensive research with leading companies,” said Jake Randall Brown, Sidel’s technical training center project manager in a news release. “During this process we looked to gather as much information as possible, including brainstorming sessions from the different departments of Sidel.”

The new center will feature tailored sessions using authentic parts for assembling and disassembling, along with functional key items of equipment such as valves; filling, blowing and labeling stations; production line PCC (panels for control and command) simulators to develop troubleshooting skills; and the latest 3-D interactive modeling system, bringing the ability to disassemble in detail every piece of equipment in the entire Sidel portfolio, says the company.

Sidel states it trains over 5,000 people globally every year.
