New training opportunities made available at the Gerhard Schubert Training Centre

Schubert, an innovator in the packaging industry, is continuously developing its state-of-the-art top-loading packaging machines. To ensure that customers and employees are always up to date with the latest technology, the company offers regular training courses at its Training Centre, which opened its doors just under a year and a half ago. The demand for these courses is high and Schubert has now invested in a new training machine so that it can continue to meet this demand.

Schubert opened the new Training Centre at its main site in Crailsheim at the end of 2022. And a great deal has been achieved since then. The existing training portfolio was scrutinised and revised in view of responding even better to the specific requirements of customers and employees. In doing so, Schubert developed new formats and content and designed a series of online training courses in addition to the face-to-face courses. Schubert is currently supplementing its offering with a recently developed digital learning platform. Personnel capacities have also been increased to enable the far-reaching program to be run continuously. What was lacking, however, was a new training machine. Sarah Busch, head of customer training at Gerhard Schubert, explains: “Our training concept is based on a well-balanced mix of traditional and digital learning content. Interactive courses and explanatory videos are a great way of understanding and familiarising yourself with certain topics, but some subjects are easier to learn when you are standing right at the machine with a trainer and a small team, and you have the opportunity to get hands-on and try things out. As our previous training machines were always fully booked, we decided to invest in a further model.” 

From format changeover to troubleshooting – learning on the current model

Typical exercises that are carried out on the new and previous packaging machines include standard activities such as referencing the robots, selecting new programs on the control panel, as well as relevant checks, maintenance, recognising and rectifying error messages and troubleshooting. The training also covers the various system components of the training machine, which is at the cutting edge of technology. From the Transmodul to the F2 and T5 robots to the 3D scanner, the aim is to build up important knowledge. Sarah Busch adds: “The training courses are very popular with both our employees and customers. With our new training machine, we can expand our capacities and offer significantly more training courses. Our customers and employees benefit from a practical training experience, which ultimately benefits everyone in their day-to-day work.”
