In a nutshell:
'Techniktage' on September 22 and 23
220 pupils took part
Insights into our manufacturing areas and vocational training programs
Focal points: Metal processing and electronics
Networking with apprentices and trainers
Last Thursday and Friday, we opened the doors of our Factory at the Lingen site to around 220 pupils from the region. As part of the first 'Techniktage' (Technology Days), we gave them exclusive insights into our state-of-the-art manufacturing areas and presented various apprenticeship occupations. The focus was on metal processing professions as well as sensor and electronics manufacturing. There was also the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with our apprentices.
We welcomed the participants in groups at our visitor center. There we started with a short presentation of the ROSEN Group and our business areas. From the visitor center, a guided tour then took them to the warehouse, through the welding shop, past our machinery in the Mechanical Manufacturing area, to the Sensor and Electronics Manufacturing area, and to our Trainee Workshop, which is specially equipped for training purposes.
"In particular, our unique machinery was visibly impressive for the young people!" says Konstantin Wascher, Head of Shop Floor Machining. "We vividly demonstrated how digitalization is also advancing in manufacturing and how humans and machines are already working together in modern manufacturing today."
During the tour, the groups of students passed a total of eight information booths, where our trainees took the word and reported about their everyday life at ROSEN as well as their training. These included, for example, the professions of industrial mechanic, construction mechanic, machine and plant operator, cutting machine operator, and electronics technician for devices and systems.
"It was a great opportunity for the pupils. Today they had the chance to take a live look behind the scenes of a large industrial company and see how, for example, metal is processed and electronics are manufactured. I'm sure they were able to take away a lot in terms of career orientation. In any case, they got a good insight into various apprenticeship occupations," said one teacher, summing up the day.
Those who still had unanswered questions after the tour were able to ask them at the latest during the subsequent networking session. Here, the young people had the chance to talk to our trainees in person while enjoying a burger and drinks and to round off the informative morning.
