The DVS practice workshop took place on 9th & 10th November 2017 in Langenfeld at TeroLab Surface GmbH. Interested mechanical engineering students from all over Germany visited TLS to gain insight into the art of thermal coating. After a presentation of the Association for Welding and related methods, Jens Rossen (fourth from the right) gave a fascinating presentation of TLS and, the first promising contacts were made at the dinner which followed.
The next morning, the students gathered to inspect the factories in small groups. Equipped with safety shoes, the prospective academics were also able to try out by lending a hand themselves. The coating hall, the mechanical pre- and post-processing, the quality control and the laboratory were thoroughly examined. After a delicious lunch the Sales Management team sat with the aspirants for some time and answered their last questions. The feedback from the eager academics could not have been better. Yet once again a very pleasant event between the DVS and the TLS.
