Training Programs


While all of our Gleeble systems boast impressive capabilities, the most important factor in generating productive data and knowledge is the human element. 


It is critical that Gleeble operators receive training on how to correctly operate and care for each machine.

Gleeble Systems are the most advanced thermal-mechanical physical simulators in the world. For more than 60 years metallurgists and engineers at Dynamic Systems have worked with their industry and academic counterparts to continuously improve and develop new Gleeble systems. Our team has also developed a hands-on training curriculum, providing operators with the knowledge needed to take full advantage of the Gleeble’s capabilities.  The majority of training is provided to new owners after the purchase of a new system, however training is also available (and recommended) to new users of existing systems. This is very valuable to organizations that experience staff/user turnover. 
Training can be conducted on location or at our facility in New York, USA. 
Training Schedules: Each training curriculum is customized based on the needs of our users and the types of equipment purchased, ranging from 5 day to 10 day schedules.  Training occurring in our New York facility, typically includes time in the schedule to explore regional tourism attractions.
The list below includes typical topics covered in a training curriculum. Sessions are spread out over multiple days and are hands-on and involve direct interaction with the Gleeble system.
