The day started with a tour of the production building. The trainer, Andreas Kusche, explained to the girls at each individual work station how progressive cavity pumps are produced. After the tour of the pump assembly shop and a brief introduction by the SEEPEX trainees, the seven schoolgirls tried their hand at the training workshop. They built pump joints, completed filing and punching and performed measurements with different types of equipment.
The young ladies were particularly impressed by the size of the production hall and the large machines. “We were given impressive insight into a production company,” explained Enya Brune enthusiastically. “I was really impressed by the large machines, and I have a much better picture now of all the things you learn when training to become a cutting machine operator or industrial mechanic,” added Maike Nolde. Andreas Kusche was thrilled at the active involvement of the young ladies and is already looking forward to the next Girls’ Day.
