How do I become an engineer at Truetzschler?

This year’s Valentine’s day was not only about spending time with the loved ones. At Truetzschler it was time to invest in the future. Therefore, 23 students from different schools in Moenchengladbach came around to learn about the tasks and demands on engineers in textile machine engineering.

How do I become an engineer at Truetzschler?

What are the different tasks of an engineer? Which skills and interests do I need for the job? Do I have to study at a university or are there any alternatives? What perspectives do I have working in a family business in the metal and electrical industry? Those and many more questions were answered at the “Business Day Engineering”. Students who are interested in working in (textile) engineering got the chance to spend the morning at our headquarter in Moenchengladbach. After providing some general information about the company, our different business units and locations, we told our guests about the options they have after having finished school. To make the information more lively, we asked some of our young students and employees to report from their perspective.

Beside 11 individual apprenticeships in four different areas, we offer a dual study program called “KIA”. This cooperative engineering training consists of a practical apprenticeship at Truetzschler, combined with a university degree of the University of Applied Sciences in Krefeld. Students undergo two phases. Henrik Klaassen and Matteo Manek are currently in the first stage of their dual studies. Within the first three years they spend three days working in the company and two days at the university. Not only does the KIA program efficiently shorten the training duration, it also provides a great deal of practical experience. 

After having finished the first phase you are a real full-time student. Only during semester break, students work at the company to handle some independent projects. From designing new transport trolleys for the electronics department to adjusting the appearance and functioning of a new product – Stefan Dammer and Andreas Muyres carried out a lot of hands-on projects during their dual studies. The two of them are currently in the final stage of their education and are about to write their bachelor’s theses this summer. 

Tour through technical centre and training workshop

In the technical centre our young employees showed the pupils our different machine types and explained how each one processes the fibres. Afterwards they visited the sheet metal production to demonstrate how the individual parts of the machines are being produced. To show where Truetzschler students spend a big amount of time, the training workshop was the next stop. Especially the 3D printer aroused the interest of our guests.

  • Managing efficiency

As a „manager for efficient processes”, Niclas Maasackers is part of several different applications.  From international production processes to quality assurance and factory planning – his fields of application are versatile. Since he successfully completed his dual studies in engineering and industrial engineering, Niclas works in the production area at Truetzschler. During his studies he enjoyed being coached very well by a mentor of the company. Another aspect he valued is that Truetzschler gives engineer students the special chance to implement and realize their own individual ideas, for example as a final dissertation.

From the idea to the finished product

Britta Luestraeten introduced the students to the work of a development engineer in mechanical construction. Therefore, she explained the winding machine TSL 12 – from the idea to the finished product. Her work is very diverse, because creating a machine requires passing different phases like competition analysis, product requirements, concept creation and construction.

Thank you!

We were very happy with the great interest in the event and are looking forward to see some of our guests again in our training workshop. Many thanks to our partners Agentur für Arbeit Mönchengladbach, MGconnect and ZDI Zentrum Mönchengladbach for this successful event and to our colleagues for their valuable insights.

TRUTZSCHLER – EcoWipes invests in Voith-Trützschler’s WLS-technology

EcoWipes is a young, innovative company that has become a leading manufacturer and converter of private label products for the hydro-entangled nonwoven segment. The firm, which is located to the north of Warsaw, was established in 2009 and has now already ordered its third nonwovens production line.
 

EcoWipes has a strong focus on innovation and sustainability and intensively monitors local and global market trends. In view of the rising consumer interest in biodegradable materials, EcoWipes opt for partners Trützschler Nonwovens and Voith to supply the new production line. The progressive and sustainable WLS (wet-laid spunlacing) concept developed by the two companies for manufacturing wet-laid hydroentangled nonwovens is a perfect fit for the EcoWipes product range. It is ideally suited for producing flushable wipes but also recyclable and biodegradable products. These materials meet consumer preferences for greater sustainability at the end of the product cycle.

The sale of this fifth WLS facility is testimony to the successful collaboration between Trützschler Nonwovens and Voith as established technology leaders in the wet-laid hydroentangled nonwoven segment.

The new production line at EcoWipes is a flexible wet-dry nonwoven facility. Voith is supplying the HydroFormer, one of the main components of the new line. The HydroFormer concept builds on Voith’s long experience in the paper and pulp industry. With HydroFormer technology the suspension is highly diluted, so nonwovens can be produced entirely from cellulose, a renewable and cost-effective raw material.

Trützschler Nonwovens is not just responsible for the hydroentangling, drying and reeling up, but will also supply its latest high-speed card. This flexible configuration enables EcoWipes to produce a broad product range of wet-laid/spunlaced or carded/spunlaced nonwovens.

Truetzschler and Voith introduce new safety standard for wet-laid spunlaced nonwovens Machinery

In the shape of standard VN 3260/TN 0790, Voith Paper and Trützschler Nonwovens have developed a new safety standard for wet-laid spunlaced (WLS) Nonwovens machines. The standard will help producers of Nonwovens to ensure safe and reliable operation of their machines. It also provides the basic prerequisite for meeting expectations in respect of production and quality:
  • Basis for safe production of Nonwovens
  • Combination of proven standards for paper and textile machines
  • Standardization process by ISO initiated

Voith and Trützschler jointly developed the manufacturing process for wet-laid and hydroentangled Nonwovens. The machines on which the materials are produced consist partly of paper machine components and partly of components from Nonwoven machines. The manufacturing process for wet-laid Nonwovens is similar to that for producing paper: A suspension consisting of water and fibers up to 40 mm long is passed over a wire on which a homogeneous fiber mat forms. The hydroentangling or spunlacing process produces bonded Nonwovens that can be textured if required. Drying and winding of the Nonwovens are done on other machine components.

The newly developed standard combines various Voith and Trützschler safety standards for paper and textile machines in a new document and thus defines the safety requirements for new hybrid machines.

The safety standard has already been incorporated by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as the basis for developing an international standard, so as to achieve greater impact at global level.
