The Importance of Training

CMB Engineering understand the importance of highly skilled teams with expertise in the latest technologies.  We take a century of experience in the design and construction of canmaking machines; and combine these skills with the very latest in canmaking technology and a wealth of ‘in the field’ training experience.  Established to meet the expectations of our customers and utilising Engineering Instructors with extensive experience; CMB Engineering has the ability to work with you to provide the right solution, in order to help you transform your teams’ knowledge and capabilities.

What Does The Academy Provide?

Our Academy provides the ideal venue for the delivery of courses, in a range of canmaking disciplines.  Set within a dedicated area; and equipped with fully functioning machines, we offer an alternative to ‘on the canline’ training, especially where access to machines may be restricted.

Through collaboration with our customers, delivery of bespoke or off the shelf training programmes can be developed either in our Academy, or within a customer’s plant.  This ensures a comprehensive understanding of how machines operate, as well as how to optimise performance and efficiency in the production environment.

When travelling to the UK from around the globe to attend one of our courses, we are able to recommend a number of hotels in and around the immediate location of our Head Office here in Shipley.  Although we cannot guarantee the quality and experience in any of the hotels we recommend; however these establishments are used by our customers on a regular basis.
