Metal technology includes many interesting and demanding activities for which special expertise and skills are required. In technical books, digital learning programmes, seminars and workshops, we impart the necessary know-how – from basic knowledge to master craftsman. In addition, we make employees fit for their tasks as trainers in the field of metal technology in trainer courses.
Pneumatics / Electropneumatics
This course was developed in cooperation with the company SMC, the world’s leading expert for pneumatic solutions. Using practical examples, the course imparts comprehensive knowledge about pneumatic components and systems. Step by step, under professional supervision, you will acquire basic physical knowledge, learn to create and simulate pneumatic plans and gain an insight into electropneumatics.

In this training course, the participants learn the basics of PLC technology and programming with the SIMATIC STEP 7 programming language in a practical manner in six instructional letters. As part of the course PLC programs for various automation tasks are created and tested with a professional simulation program.
Basic structure and functions of modern automation systems
Installation steps for configuration and parameterization of software and hardware
Well-founded insight into the process-oriented working method and operation of a SIMATIC S7-300
Creation of PLC projects and the systematic design of program sequences and program documentation
Important programming commands in different programming languages (AWL/KOP/FUP)
Program structure with functions, data and function blocks
Standard functions, standard function blocks and individual registers in SIMATIC STEP 7 projects
Practical exercises on the simulation models are used for commissioning and testing
Systematic troubleshooting and error correction
This course is suitable for anyone who is encountering the subject of hydraulics for the first time. The focus is on safety, basic physics and the structure of a simple hydraulic system. Furthermore, the function and schematic structure of various components are covered extensively in the course to help participants get started with hydraulics. With the help of various measuring methods, the special features and effects of area ratios are demonstrated in practice, among other things.
Starting from some general basics, the most important types of drives are introduced one after another in this course. Every electric drive is characterised by its electric motor. The considerations of the drives will therefore always begin with functional descriptions of the type of motor used and will then be extended to the actuators and methods for controlling and regulating the drive.

Industrial Foreman Metal
Technological change in industry is leading to new structures, courses of action and demands in companies. As a result, there is a growing need for middle managers in industry. This is where the metal industry foreman comes in. Industrial foremen in the metal sector are coordinators, consultants and managers in their companies. As an intermediary between skilled workers and company management, you assume responsibility for production and employees.
