Know-how, Experience, Tips and Tricks

"I gained a great deal of background knowledge which will be very useful for the challenges ahead of me. The use of special needles in particular, plus optimization of machine settings. The training team was extremely committed to the topics and gave me detailed answers to my questions right away." That was how Mr. Tobias Thiem, an employee from NORAFIN Ind. GmbH, Müllheim, Germany, summed up his experience at the Groz-Beckert Academy. He attended the basic course in "Nonwovens Technology" in late 2011.
As part of the training, the participants gained basic knowledge about felting needles, structuring needles and accessories, all of which was rounded off by various experiments and demonstrations in the Technical Center "Nonwovens" at the Technology and Development Center (TEZ). All in all, those taking part experienced much that was new, learning practical tips and tricks and gaining comprehensive expertise.
