Dear <Manager name>,
I’m writing to request permission
to attend the “Getting More From Your CNC Machines”
2-day seminar. Conducted by CNC Concepts, Inc. and
taught by industry-expert Mike Lynch, it will be held on
July 7th and 8th at the Sandvik Coromant Productivity
Center in Schaumburg, Illinois. You may know of Mr.
Lynch from his monthly column CNC Tech-Talk in Modern
Machine Shop Magazine or from one of the many CNC
textbooks he’s authored. He’s been around the industry
for a long time and has an excellent reputation for
training people in the field of CNC technology.
The seminar I’m hoping to attend
is divided into four sections, and each is of primary
interest to our company’s needs. First we’ll be studying
a series of advanced techniques with basic CNC
functions. I’ll surely learn several tricks and
shortcuts that will help me do my job better.
Second, we’ll be studying the
principles and specific techniques required for setup
reduction. I’ll learn what it takes to reduce the time
that a machine is down between production runs.
Third, Mr. Lynch will present the
principles and techniques required for reducing the time
it takes to complete a production run. I’ll be learning
what is required to shorten cycle times – not just
during the CNC cycle – but for everything that happens
during a production run.
And fourth, I’ll be exposed to
parametric programming – and will see many real-world
applications for this very powerful programming feature.
We’ll surely be able to pay for
this seminar with the savings I’ll achieve by applying
just one or two of the techniques shown in this
A 320 page course manual, as well
as a manual including many parametric programming
examples, is provided to give me a permanent reference
for the class. And, I’ll be offered free phone or email
assistance should I need help applying any of the
techniques I learn.
I think this seminar is an
outstanding value, considering how concentrated it is
with time and cost savings ideas – ideas that, once
implemented, will have a direct and positive impact on
our bottom line. If we register on or before June 26th,
2009, the seminar cost is only $315.00 – after that,
it’s $350.00. And there is an additional discount should
we decide to send more than one person ($280.00 each if
we register by June 26th).
Thank you in advance for
considering this opportunity for me to attend the this
seminar. Please let me know if you need additional
information about the sessions. I look forward to
hearing a positive response to my request.
