Marc-Jan Goossink, manager after sales, comments, “Ongoing training and education of operators and engineers is a crucial contribution to a printer’s financial goals, but more importantly it increases their motivation and dedication. In an era where it’s difficult to find and retain technically trained personnel, that’s highly valuable.”
The training courses are designed to help operators and engineers with hands-on training combined with practical knowledge. Manager of the Traning Centre, Leopold der Nederlanden, says, “Our headquarters offers an interactive learning environment where operators and engineers can focus 100% on training, and we can simulate an actual production setting including pre-programed machine faults to help with troubleshooting and preventing press down-time.”
The courses consist of four themes:
- Basic set-up functions of the press
- Machine operation (such as register, die-cutting, ink drying, corona treatment, web cleaner, laminating, cold foil and more)
- Press maintenance
Goossink concludes, “Our in-depth training courses provide a valuable opportunity to help operators and engineers advance their skills and knowledge to a higher level. I am excited about these programs, and look forward to welcoming participants to Arnhem.”
Initial training sessions offered in September and November are now open for registration, with limited group sizes. Details about the programs, dates, costs and how to register are available via the MPS website.
