Sumitomo Seminars

Our goal is to ensure efficient machining processes for our customers. Qualified employees are a decisive success factor in global competition - and this is exactly where our seminars come in. If process disturbances are detected at an early stage, tool solutions can be used and the production process can be sustainably optimized. Benefit from the exchange of experience with our globally networked Tool Engineering Centers.

In addition to basic seminars, our training programme includes in-depth advanced seminars as well as individual theme workshops and production analyses. The seminars take place in our European Design & Engineering Center (EDEC) in Lauchheim, in our European headquarters in Willich or at your location.
