Flottweg Academy

Your Training Center: Individual and Realistically Practical

Do you have a decanter, Tricanter®, or separator from Flottweg? Want to know how you can get the best possible separation results and best preserve the availability and value of your machine?

To achieve all that, it's important for your employees to be specifically trained for the new machine and its individual components.

That's where Flottweg Academy comes in. We provide customized training to support our customers in getting the best from their separation processes.

What Are the Goals of Our Training?

The goal of our training is to train your employees specifically on the new machine and its individual components.

 This is the basis for:

  • Improved process know-how
  • Maximizing output
  • Avoiding costly downtime
  • Increasing technical initiative
  • Improving internal workflows
  • Optimizing the maintenance process
  • Extending the machine's service life
  • Increasing system availability
  • Getting to know our headquarters in Vilsbiburg
  • An exchange of information with highly qualified instructors with experience in the field

How Do Our Training Courses Work?

Our Flottweg Academy in Vilsbiburg coordinate training courses individually with the requirements and scheduling needs of our customers. We then put together the right training program depending on the machine and the application.

What do you need to do when solid particles have blocked the intake or discharge of the machine? How are basic maintenance tasks carried out? What do you need to watch for when lubricating the individual assemblies? How do you find the cause of a fault?

At the end of the training, your employees will be able to answer all these questions and more!
