For the second time in the industrial park am Kreuz in Idar-Oberstein , the day of apprenticeship was held and FRITSCH Milling and Sizing provided an informative as well as entertaining mix of lectures, production facility tours, instrument demonstrations and talks with the students.
Numerous students took the chance to get to know FRITSCH as a training post personally: Approximately 300 to 400 youths visited the company, the greater part during the morning hours. In the afternoon, mostly youths attended – sometimes with their parents – to specifically search for apprenticeship training positions and some seized the opportunity to directly drop off a resume. There were also large numbers of enquiries for practical training.
In the entrance of production facility II, anyone interested could see FRITSCH instruments at work.
Laboratory assistant Swen Donauer explained and demonstrated the functionality of the Mortar Grinder PULVERISETTE 2, the Variable-Speed Rotor Mill PULVERISETTE 14 and the Mini-Mill PULVERISETTE 23.
In the following theoretical part, the FRITSCH Team consisting of Max Fritsch, Jan Bender, Andreas Cullmann and Fabian Mayer presented in a brief PowerPoint presentation FRITSCH’s key data. Interesting information was of course provided about the actual apprenticeship: A job profile of the industrial clerks and industrial mechanics described, an exemplary apprenticeship schedule explained and further education addressed. Afterwards the employees answered the youth’s questions.
Production facility manager Hermann Michel accompanied the students afterwards through the production hall explaining on different work stations, the production process of the laboratory mills from the raw part to the finished product. Surely interesting were the large CNC machines, but also test and measuring tools for example the calliper are typical tools for an industrial mechanic. Again the visitors took the opportunity to directly ask questions and especially exchanging information with FRITSCH apprentices.
