Take advantage of our unique range of learning systems and technologies when designing, planning and equipping your customised learning laboratories or workshops. We bridge the gap between technical education and industry and ensure that your basic and further education programmes are focused on real industrial requirements.
Designing and planning workshops and learning laboratories
Training for the factory of the future
Flexibility, agility, adaptability and efficiency – these are the demands production departments of the future will have to meet. To facilitate a successful transformation in basic and further education, the Industry 4.0 laboratory contains everything from individual workstations to a complete training factory. Based on the standard content used in mechatronics training, students are gradually introduced to content relevant to Industry 4.0 all the way to the cyber–physical factory. Since learning areas and needs are constantly changing, the laboratory is modular and flexible and can be adapted and expanded to suit individual requirements at any time.
Learning and experimenting with the cyber–physical factory
The CP factory visualises the practical implementation of the networked factory. It's a comprehensive, modular and expandable factory model for Industry 4.0 that can be used to illustrate many areas of the value chain. Robotino®, the autonomous, mobile robot, brings the adaptability of digital production to life.
Basic knowledge of the fundamental technologies
The experience gained from over a thousand pneumatic and hydraulic courses enables us to successfully teach the basics. The laboratory design and the choice of learning components and media encourage independent learning phases with the training programmes: connected learning with Tec2Screen®, circuit design and simulation with FluidSIM®, practical implementation, functional testing and optimisation of the circuits working in groups with the equipment sets.
The very first step in training and automation technology
Training in the basic aspects of mechatronics is the very first step of training in the topic of automation. All important aspects of electrical engineering and electronics, including non-solid-state circuits and electric drives, are taught in this laboratory. The laboratory equipment, which is tailored to the technology packages, includes the required power supply, mounting frames for experimentation plates and all the required accessories.
Fostering technological experience and knowledge as well as interpersonal skills
Operating and maintaining complex automated production systems is increasingly the responsibility of skilled employees and technicians. This requires the seamless interaction of all the technologies involved. The learning stations in the laboratory for automation technology form the basis for general technology training using relevant problems from actual operations. This provides the perfect platform for analysing, understanding and mastering the interaction between mechanics, pneumatics, electric systems, control technology and communication interfaces – all vital for successfully managing complex networked systems.
Sharing knowledge and teaching programming skills in a realistic and virtual environment
Using realistic simulations allows students to optimally prepare for working with different technologies. The laboratory contains all the software tools for PLC and robot programming, CAD/CAM/CNC, e-learning and connected learning with Tec2Screen®. With the Classroom Manager, target groups, content and learning media can be managed, learning groups can be organised and individual learning opportunities can be created.
Transferring CNC knowledge in a professional and future-oriented manner
Future-oriented CNC training means teaching secondary and university students to the highest industry standards, from machine tools to software solutions to teaching materials. The CAD/CAM/CNC lab provides a quick, efficient introduction to professional CNC training. It features 1:1 programming with software identical to the machine controller, hands-on learning, programming and computer simulation for greater machine availability and test runs on the computer to increase expertise and reduce errors.
We focus on quality
When it comes to basic and further training in metalworking, the use of high-quality machines and tools is absolutely essential. Our partners are all experienced manufacturers who guarantee consistently high quality standards. The metalworking laboratory is fully equipped with workbenches, machines, and all the necessary tools. We guarantee maximum precision, robust design, easy operation, high safety standards, exceptional durability and a supply of spare parts well beyond ten years for all machines installed in the laboratory.
High-quality training in different welding methods
Virtually all metalworking workshops and industrial companies use welding process to cost-effectively manufacture a wide range of products to the highest quality standards. The welding technology laboratory covers the most widely used methods such as MIG/MAG/TIG/MMA welding and plasma cutting. High-quality welding equipment, fully equipped welding booths and the latest simulation and demonstration tools open the door to comprehensive training and qualification.
Instrumentation and control engineering and the core processes in water and wastewater treatment
Governments, local authorities and businesses have a responsibility to provide people and businesses with sufficient quality and quantity of water. Expertise and training are crucial factors to achieve this goal. The basic principles of instrumentation and control technology are clearly presented in the laboratory using EDS® Water Management. The learning stations also cover the entire water cycle, from water purification to water supply and wastewater treatment.
Practical knowledge for working with renewable energy systems
Generating energy from renewable natural resources, such as wind, sunlight, rain, geothermal energy etc., has become increasingly important in recent years. The need for innovative technologies for intelligent grid design, as well as for skilled employees, has also risen dramatically. Large-format, proportionally sized components for educational environments are invaluable when it comes to learning how to install, operate, maintain and service alternative energy systems.
Modern basic and further education training in structural engineering
The training content in the masonry workshop includes industry trends, such as new materials and construction methods
Introduction to automation technology
Electric drives or motors, whether DC or AC motors, are found everywhere in industry.
Electric motors can be classified by type of electrical power source, internal design, application, type of motion output, etc.
All aspects of industrial drives can be covered in this lab.
Modern CNC systems meet the requirements of today’s basic and further education in the metal sector
The universal CNC machine features innovative machine technology such as digital drives along all axes. The optimised machine structure increases stability during machining and offers a high degree of flexibility in production.
Engineering and scientific basis for training in the topic of food production processes
Food processing companies are always trying out new ways of transforming and preserving food. Students will be able to follow the various stages of food production processes and industrial processes as well as monitor quality and hygiene throughout.
Transmitting in-depth basic knowledge using the latest laboratory practices
The fluid mechanics laboratory facilitates hands-on training with pump systems,
process automation components and control systems, and covers all aspects of a typical water management system.
All learning systems are equipped with typical industrial components and are supported with instructional manuals and textbooks.
Basic and further education in automotive professions
This workshop will provide future mechatronic engineers or technicians with valuable training in automotive technology, enabling them to gain the knowledge and the practical skills required for both "traditional" automotive mechanics and automotive electronics. They will learn how to analyse electric, electronic and mechanical systems as well as identify and fix malfunctions using computer-aided measurement and testing systems.
