Workshop for apprentices — Fastening technology

This workshop is specifically designed to meet the needs of apprentices in the metalworking industry who still have little experience in the practical aspects of torque and reliable screw assembly. This offer is an impressive, practical session that provides fundamental information on how to use hand-operated torque tools in a way that ensures process reliability in line with the current state-of-the-art technology.

Lean intensive practical workshop

"With Lean Management, we help customers create a company culture that promotes faster processes while minimising material waste, absences and duplications. This means that the company saves time, material and therefore a lot of money", explains Reto Gruber.

Participants will get an insight into the opportunities and requirements of a lean "SmartFactory".

LEA workplace design and ergonomics

The right posture makes things easier — literally: Setting up a workplace in an ergonomic way means that employees work more efficiently, with increased concentration, without errors and in a healthier way. This one-day workshop shows how this works and how ergonomics can even save companies money. The offer covers seven areas: administration, development, manufacturing, logistics, assembly, quality inspection and packaging. During each topic, workflows are defined and examined and optimisations are revealed.
