One of the key attractions of the Centre is an insulating glass line reserved exclusively for training purposes. The first students to use the facility were the employees of glass producer Glass Systems from Wales, who have successfully completed their seminar.
This investment in a modern training centre is set to further extend the services offered by Bystronic-Lenhardt Technology. Roland Maisenbacher, Training Manager, comments:
Customers dont expect our service to end at the factory gate. Thats why we offer them continual support in the use of products from the Bystronic glass Group range. This does not just incorporate a knowledge of the machines but includes an understanding on the best operating and maintenance techniques.
Careful attention was placed on the design and structure of the building in order to create a pleasant atmosphere which is conducive to learning. The training rooms have modern, functional presentation facilities which accommodate the graduated Bystronic training principle. After every theoretical lesson, the new knowledge is tested in the technical training room on individual components such as controllers or control consoles. Once that has been successfully completed, the application follows in the practical training room on the insulating glass line itself.
The worthwhile nature of this investment has been substantiated by the positive reactions from two of the first training students. Keith Tarrant from Wales, comments: This has been superb training. I now feel a great deal more confident. His colleague Wayne Cassar adds. Now Im familiar with the simple manoeuvres that make my work so much easier. Im sure that from now on well have less downtimes on our lines.
The Bystronic training concept embraces four types of course - train´operate, train´maintain, train´repair and train´know. This extends from learning the basic functions via fault rectification through to operator maintainance of the machines.
