The Plansee Group, headquartered in Reutte, Austria, has invested €11 million in a new training centre. The facility was officially opened nine months later than originally planned due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new building in Reutte creates space for the training of up to 240 apprentices in six technical apprenticeships.

“With this new building, Plansee is sending a clear signal that the training of skilled workers will become even more important for entrepreneurial success in the future. I offer my sincere congratulations on this,” stated Günther Platter, Governor of the state of Tyrol, at the centre’s opening.

The training centre provides 2,700 m2 space for practical training. The equipment is set up according to the main areas of training: manual work, turning, milling, grinding and CNC-controlled machines. In addition, the Plansee Group has invested in new equipment for Additive Manufacturing and grinding. The CNC machines are equipped with the latest software for computer-aided manufacturing processes (CAM technologies).

“With more space, a modern machinery park and new technologies, we are creating the conditions to be able to offer our apprentices top-level training in the future,” commented Karlheinz Wex, spokesman of the Plansee Group executive board.

The company trains exclusively for its own needs. After successfully completing apprenticeships, young skilled workers are offered permanent employment.

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.
