Training at Frech.
Wednesday, November 4, 2015
Artan Sula, Luke Wade and Lee Grimley recently attended and successfully completed machine setting training at the Frech Technology Centre in Schorndorf, Bavaria in Germany.
The week long training course saw the PMS team (Hot Chamber Group) learn about the ins and outs of Frech machines, making good castings, die temperature controls, tool design, use of die-lube spray, fault finding, correct settings, system parameters and injection moulding.
PMS Diecasting currently has 10 Frech machines used on a daily basis and we regularly invest in training our employees to be the best they can be.
For Artan, Luke and Lee there was also time to enjoy great food and beer as well as the local culture and history. This included Volksfest, a visit to the Kesslehaus Brewery, a wine tasting evening at the Remstalkellerei Winery which included tasting 9 different bottles of wine as well as sausage and cheese platters and a visit to Schorndorf Castle.
Thanks to Luke Wade for the photos!
In 1949 the toolmaker Oskar Frech founded a company for the manufacture of diecasting and plastic injection tools in Schorndorf near Stuttgart. In 1965 the founder’s son, Wolfgang Frech, a graduate mechanical engineer, overtook responsibility for the company. He was the driving force for the expansion of the product range to include hot and cold chamber diecasting machines, as well as for the international orientation of the company. Today he remains the figurehead of the company as the president of the advisory board.
The company Oskar Frech GmbH + Co. KG is renowned for the manufacture of the highest quality diecasting machines and tooling available on the market today. Wherever reliability and safety are a priority and whenever the latest process technology is a requirement, our worldwide network of companies and our comprehensive service program are the guarantee of satisfaction for customers.
