hGears increases involvement in education in 2021

April 28, 2021

The Italian plant of the hGears group, in Padova, is placing an increased emphasis on its involvement in education, including working with students from local schools.

The Powder Metallurgy parts maker is one of a number of partner companies of the ITS Academy Mechatronics of Vicenza, and hosts several young people in two-year work-placement courses in various company functions.

Amongst other ventures, training activity is currently being carried out via the Technical Economic Institute Calvi in Padua, spotlighting issues of ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’. The company also recently participated in a project involving fifth-year students from a number of institutes in the provinces of Padua and Treviso, in order to raise awareness among young people on the importance of developing skills to better facilitate their entrance into the workplace.

On top of this, hGears Group is undertaking large-scale projects outside Italy with its entrance into a three-year partnership agreement with ENACTUS, an international non-profit organisation committed to bridging the gap between the academic and professional worlds, and supports projects and initiatives in Italy, Germany and China.

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
