Fette Offers VRTrain(TM) Visual Simulation Training for Tablet Presses

New interactive programs speed operator proficiency and reduce training costs

ROCKAWAY, NJ - Fette, a leading manufacturer and supplier of tablet presses for both pharmaceutical and industrial applications, will soon be offering VRTrain 3-D visual simulation programs for training operators on the use and care of its tablet presses, it was announced by Rich Derickson, Vice President of Sales & Operations for Fette America. The first program, for the Fette 2090i, is now available. Additional programs for other machines will be added in the coming months.

According to Mr. Derickson, the VRTrain software modules will help to reduce direct training expenses while providing accelerated operator certification and more effective cross training. "The simulated machine environment at the heart of the program allows for unlimited training time on the virtual machine, with fully immersive and interactive simulations that totally engage the user, allowing them to make decisions, practice, and test their newly-learned skills. This means that operators will be better trained, resulting in greater safety and efficiency on the production floor."

According to Product Animations, Inc., producers of VRTrain, studies by the National Training Laboratory for Applied Behavioral Science show that training with interactive simulation programs increases understanding and retention almost five times over the typical classroom setting.

Fette America is a direct extension of Fette GmbH of Schwarzenbek, Germany, one of the first companies to develop and perfect the rotary tablet press. With unmatched service and support, Fette America offers complete services to Fette clients in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, including new and used machine sales, technical assistance, machine installations, training classes and seminars, validation, maintenance, trouble-shooting and repairs, spare parts, and tooling.
