Great amazement at large machines - 50 kids at information day
Career orientation up close: at the information day initiated by Schuster and Fuchstal Middle School on February 8 and 9, 2023, two 7th graders were able to look behind the scenes of our company, watch robots at work and design metalworking themselves in the form of a pencil holder. The enthusiasm was great - internship inquiries already followed.
What distinguishes Schuster Maschinenbau from other companies in the region? How is a vertical lathe created? And how are robots used nowadays for a fully automated workflow? The approximately 50 young people from the Fuchstal Middle School received answers to these and other exciting questions in person from Florian Rambach, instructor for industrial mechanics, during a tour of Schuster manufacturing. They were particularly impressed by the robot technology for bin picking (i.e. the automated, sensor-supported removal, transfer and refeeding of raw parts to the production line) and the F40, which could be marveled at from the raw setup to the finished machine.
The young people also got a better orientation by being clearly taught the difference to other companies. Florian Rambach summed it up in an understandable way: "Schuster builds machines and the others make series parts; we are more or less the carpenters and they the sawmill."
Of course, the kids were also allowed to lend a hand themselves and experience innovative metal processing in practice. Bending, deburring and assembling sheet metal: Everybody created their own pencil holder, which could be taken home as a souvenir - and will certainly serve as a welcome all-rounder in the technical drawing course
Overall, the feedback on the information day from the young people, parents and teachers was overwhelmingly positive. The first internship applications followed and the date for next year has already been set.
