Teaming up with the region

High-tech grinding sets the standard, the Haas Multigrind®CU is on the ETS Spaichingen curriculum.

The continuing shortage of skilled workers is one of the most important future issues in the Schwarzwald-Baar-Heuberg region. Due to demographic change, the gap between supply and demand is widening.

Growth industries such as machining technology in particular offer both established specialists and career starters crisis-proof jobs with above-average pay and excellent career opportunities.

Haas Schleifmaschinen supports the region and focuses specifically on encouraging young talent. In this way, Haas secures the future of its company as well as that of young people and young adults.

 "We can only shape our future and our corporate goals with a growing team of highly qualified professionals. Haas Schleifmaschinen is committed to the region and its company location in Trossingen. We are jointly responsible for further developing this attractive location. The future belongs to young people and is built in the present. This is why we actively support training projects in the region, such as the apprentices for machining mechanics at the Erwin-Teufel-Schule (ETS) in Spaichingen," says Thomas Bader, Managing Director of the high-tech grinding machine manufacturer Haas from Trossingen.


Said, done, donated.

With a brand new Multigrind® CU, Haas Schleifmaschinen and the Administrative District of Tuttlingen are supporting the practical learning location in Spaichingen. The state-of-the-art 5-axis grinding machine is used to produce highly complex tools and workpieces for the machining industry, medical technology and aerospace, among others. The grinding machine fits perfectly into the future teaching concept of the Erwin-Teufel-Schule. The training as a machining mechanic with a firmly integrated practical part has proved to be very successful.



"We must teach our future the µ."

"In the metal cutting industry, the precision of the components continues to increase and today there is no way around precision grinding for almost all workpieces. We have to teach our future the µ," says Thomas Bader.

"This is best achieved when the trainees already learn the finest processing on a current high-tech grinding machine during their training," explains Steffen Schmidt, Sales Manager Retrofit at Haas Schleifmaschinen. "Particularly in the case of dual training, it is important to build on what was learned at school and in the company. Outdated technology prevents this flow".

High-tech grinding sets the standard

"We have to focus much more on grinding technology in order to meet the growing demands from the region," says Walter Blaudischek, deputy headmaster of ETS. "Through the close exchange with the companies in our region, we are able to provide training in line with requirements. Experts for machining mechanics in the field of grinding technology are very much in demand in the high-tech region Schwarzwald-Baar-Heuberg. Machining technology, in particular, offers career starters a large number of training opportunities and jobs, from which everyone benefits. We here at the ETS, the companies in the region and above all our students".



Lifelong learning also for teachers

"First, the team of teachers had to go back to school in the practice classroom, reports headmaster Thomas Löffler. "After training at the Multigrind® CU, we developed a pedagogically and didactically convincing learning concept with the specialist teachers, which was not an easy task with this highly sophisticated technology. The continuous development and improvement of the school at eye level with technology development in industry is anchored in our DNA. The Erwin-Teufel-Schule is known for this far beyond the Schwarzwald-Baar-Heuberg region. This is also shown by the steadily increasing number of applications from outside the region".

The result for the prospective machining mechanics reads like this in the ETS Open House brochure: The top profession in our region: Machining Mechanic (m/f/d)

"With your training as a cutting machine operator, you will learn everything you need to produce interesting technical parts yourself on computer-controlled machines. You will learn how to use the right machines and tools, plan the production steps, program the control system and set up the machine for production. And if you want to go even further, good trainees can qualify for a special development program." It's nice that we at Haas Schleifmaschinen were able to make a contribution.

If you are still looking for a top job, have completed the Werkrealschule or Realschule and are interested in a 3.5-year dual apprenticeship, you can find out more at www.zukunft-zerspanungstechnik.de

At this point, there are other interesting options: e.g. training plus advanced technical college entrance qualification for high-performance, committed chippers. In addition information to the training occupations: Mechatronics technicians, industrial mechanics, technical product designers, etc.

Or completely new: Industrial studies with bachelor's degree and deep insight into practice, together with the Tuttlingen University Campus and the Furtwangen University of Applied Sciences.

Dual training doubly optimal.

Haas Schleifmaschinen trainees also have the best experience with training as machining mechanics. For them, it is doubly optimal. They can transfer the know-how from their practical training at Haas grinding machines perfectly into the classroom without changing the grinding machine. Is that perhaps why one of them also became the best of his year?

The best machinist of his year comments as follows: "At the beginning of my apprenticeship I would not have thought how high the requirements would be and how interesting it would be. Looking back on the last 2 years, I am really proud of what I was able to acquire through the dual training. Who is interested in high-tech will find a real dream job here".

"I'm deeply committed to the region."

Thomas Bader still remembers his training well. After studying mechanical engineering, the graduate engineer began his career with a regional mechanical engineer as a design engineer. He has been with Haas since 1990, where he joined as a partner in 2002 and is now responsible for technology and sales as Managing Director.   


We offer a motivating environment and good career opportunities for young people in Trossingen.
