Beringen, Switzerland/Duesseldorf, Germany – At Interpack 2014, Bosch Packaging Technology, a leading supplier of process and packaging technology, presents its new concept for technical trainings. The division has begun to establish a worldwide training platform under the umbrella brand Bosch Packaging Academy, offering customers and employees a standardized knowledge pool for the entire machine portfolio from Bosch Packaging Technology. “The centrally bundled program makes it easy for customers to choose their suitable training product, especially for topics covering different technologies,” explained Severin Diepold, project manager, Bosch Packaging Services.

First centers of competence in Crailsheim and Beringen
The Bosch Packaging Academy will comprise individual centers of competence and local country academies. The sites in Crailsheim, Germany and Beringen, Switzerland are the first centers of competence to offer specific technical trainings for the product divisions Pharma and Confectionery and Food under the Academy umbrella. Bosch will integrate further sites into the comprehensive training concept step by step, in order to make standardized trainings for the entire product portfolio available worldwide and from a single source. In the coming years, Bosch will further add local country academies for basic trainings to the Academy, amongst others in China and Egypt.

Modular training program
Customers have the opportunity to choose from three different training modules: basic trainings for the safe and efficient operation and maintenance of Bosch machinery, advanced trainings for increased productivity, as well as specific programs for specialist topics such as Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), servo technology or IT. With a combination of different training methods such as theoretical lessons, multimedia training and hands-on experience, Bosch offers customers maximum flexibility.

On-site training
In addition to training sessions at individual Academy sites, Bosch also offers trainings at customers’ premises. Depending on the module, different trainers manage the courses: while country trainers are available as experts for basic machine knowledge in the respective local language, specialist trainers from the individual centers of competence teach in-depth content. “When new machinery is installed, Bosch informs customers about relevant security aspects during general machine startup. Our machinery training aims at imparting technical and machine-specific knowledge for individual customer situations,” Severin Diepold emphasized. “This way we make sure that our customers receive uniform trainings for their entire lines and obtain optimum results.”

At Interpack 2014, visitors can learn how to increase the efficiency of maintenance and machine operation through trainings. In addition, Bosch presents its tailor-made services portfolio focusing on solutions for a higher flexibility, Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and productivity.

Bosch’s technologies are on display at Interpack 2014, Duesseldorf, Germany, from May 8 to 14, hall 6, booth A31-C58.
