Also, this year, the Apprentice Days took place in the western Enzkreis, where it was possible to gain insight into other training companies and occupations. The project kicked off on 11 June with a total of 17 apprentices from IMO Oberflächentechnik GmbH, Leicht + Müller Stanztechnik GmbH & Co. KG and MSE Filterpressen GmbH. Here, the group got a company tour, the application areas of filter presses were presented and filtration tests were observed. In the workshop, the apprentices carried out their first trials using manual electric welding.
Further company visits
The next visit was to Leicht + Müller was visited in Wilferdingen. In addition to a factory tour, the Design, Punching and Injection Moulding, Grinding and Eroding, and CNC Milling Departments as well as the Apprentice Workshop were visited. Bolstered by refreshments, we went on to Königsbach to IMO Oberflächentechnik GmbH. Here, too, there was a short company presentation. During the company tour, the environmental technology, warehouse logistics areas and especially the jobs of the surface coater were presented. Whilst enjoying drinks and a small refreshment, all reflected on their day. Everyone agreed that this event is a good idea; allowing apprentices to see and learn a lot of new things, and therefore should be repeated in the future. Additional Apprentice Days were held at Felss Holding GmbH, Kunzmann Maschinenbau GmbH, Heco GmbH, Zecha Hartmetall-Werk-zeugfabrikation GmbH, Eugen Geyer GmbH, Walter Schneider GmbH and Karl Casper GmbH & Co. KG.
