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.

More competence leads to higher productivity

Our systematically structured seminars contain practice-oriented application examples with direct reference to the lectures shown. We would also be happy to integrate your individual task as a training topic in our seminars. Demo videos, plenum discussions and machining examples on the machine complement our training courses. Each participant receives the seminar documents to transfer what they have learned to their daily production process. Our seminars are aimed at all employees from machining industry, such as work planners, programmers, machine operators, tool setters and application engineers. The optimal number of participants is 10 to a maximum of 20.
