The RWTH's Mechanics Vocational Training Centre (BAZ Mechanics) qualifies approximately 45 trainees in the occupation of "Industrial Mechanic for Precision Tool Making" on a centralised, part-time basis every year. Starting in September, the trainees are familiarised with plastics processing in one-week qualification courses. The focus here is on the processing technologies of forming, machining and welding. The Eschweiler-based company WEGENER International GmbH has now generously equipped the IKV Plastics Training Centre with hot gas welding equipment and tools.

We would like to express our sincere thanks for this support of the training work of the IKV Plastics Training Centre BAZ Mechanics and wish the trainees much pleasure in working with the new welding equipment.
