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.
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.
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.
This course teaches the diverse possibilities of object-oriented design with the CAD program SolidWorks®. Participants learn to create 3D models with the CAD software SolidWorksDIN, to design their own shapes as well as to design components and assemblies.
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.
