Mettler Toledo PMMI CI Vision Hands On Training
Mettler-Toledo CI-Vision has established the CI-Vision Vision Institute (CVI) to help its customers optimize the benefits they receive from investing in CI-Vision machine vision systems. Trainers certified by the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI) provide both classroom and hands-on training in the basic technology, effective application and proper maintenance of CI-Vision machine vision inspection systems.

The CI-Vision Institute is directed by Troy Farkas, who has more than 18 years of experience in the packaging industry with an extensive background in molding, machinery and plastics. He is a PMMI-certified trainer as well as engineer.

Courses are designed for students with varying levels of experience and skill, ranging from production line operators/users to specialists/tuners and experts/trainers. CVI also works closely with customers to design customized specialized training to meet their specific needs.

Training is conducted at the Mettler-Toledo CI-Vision facility in Aurora, IL (suburban Chicago) and each course generally lasts three days. Class size is usually 6-8 participants, which allows for maximum contact with the instructor and plenty of hands-on experience. Larger companies that may have multiple inspection setups and/or a large operator staff can arrange for training at their own facilities.
