Indeco held steel shear product training in conjunction with its national sales and service meeting Sept. 4 through 6 at its main U.S. facility in Milford, Conn.
All U.S. and Canadian field personnel were on hand for the training, as well as delegates from Indeco subsidiaries in Great Britain and Australia.
Indeco mounted an ISS30-60F (fixed) steel shear on a Komatsu PC300 and an ISS25-40R (rotating) on a Komatsu PC220 for the purpose of field demonstration.
All Indeco personnel gained hands-on knowledge of the steel shear and pulverizer product lines through the operation of the company’s shears in typical applications.
“This year we wanted to take a different, more hands-on approach to our annual meeting,” said Ryan Murphy, director of marketing. “Instead of a purely classroom-type training environment, we felt our people would be best served operating the machines, testing and proving the products for themselves. On day two, attendees got to see the products in varying levels of assembly, being able to truly grasp the design features and the benefits those features bring to the marketplace.”
