The celebrations will be preceded by an info day in the form of an open house for potential trainees and students interested in a career at LAUFFER on Tuesday, 20 September between 2:00 and 5:00 pm. There will be plenty of information here about the apprenticeships and courses of study offered by the company from current trainees, students and trainers from all areas of the company.

LAUFFER Technology Days

Things will then get underway on Wednesday, 21 September 2022 and Thursday, 22 September 2022 with the LAUFFER Technology Days, an international in-house exhibition that will be held in full for the first time since the Corona pandemic. The proven exhibition format will present all of the company's product groups (see separate press release) in one central event as well as several interesting presentations by industry experts, LAUFFER technology specialists, from users, customers and market companions.

Speaker Series

On the first "Technology Day", Dr. Sandra Engle and Anke Uhlig from the VDMA, Armin Schlotz and Stefan Zimmermann (Bosch Rexroth), Luca Simon (Arburg GmbH + Co. KG), Christian Reuther (ZFT Plasticard) and Dr Clothilde Manzano (Ahlstrom Munksjö Group), among others, will comment on current technology and industry topics, followed on the second day by Ralph Fiehler (KSG GmbH), Andreas Orth (Baumüller GmbH), Thilo Schmitt (Miba Friction), Marco Febel (LAUFFER Pressen) and Insabelle Limousin (Thales). The presentations will focus primarily on the thematic "common thread" of the Technology Days, "Energy Efficiency and Sustainability", a focus that is coming to the fore with great momentum in view of recent global developments in climate change, inflation and energy costs. The company has also recently commented extensively on this topic in social media.
