Many branches of industry are now complaining about a growing shortage of skilled workers. Training is one way of “replenishing” the required skilled workers virtually on one’s own initiative. This requires not only appropriate training places but also a good training infrastructure. The Paderborn company Lödige Maschinenbau is one of the few companies that still operate and expand their own training workshop. This article is based on the unique List of the 200 largest mechanical engineering companies in Germany.

Computer-controlled milling – now also in the training workshop
To this end, a new CNC universal milling machine was recently purchased for the training workshop to expand the machinery already available there. In the training workshop, trainees are to acquire practical skills and knowledge in peace and quiet and under expert guidance, independent of ongoing production processes. The computer-controlled milling machine is used for metalworking, an indispensable basic skill in mechanical engineering. Lödige in Paderborn currently employs 15 apprentices in the industrial-technical field. Whatever qualification is aimed for – basic metal training is compulsory for all training courses. This includes the use of classic tools such as file, saw, drill and conventional milling machines. The CNC universal milling machine now expands the training spectrum to include state-of-the-art technology.
