Folding- and Training Courses

 

In our folding courses, participants learn the basics of folding or brush up their existing knowledge. In addition, we offer training courses on servicing, maintaining and repairing MBO machines.

You can compile your personal seminar or training course entirely in line with your requirements – both in terms of content and course length, as well as the training location. Speak to us; we will be pleased to advise and support you in the planning process.

With our expert instructors (our MBO application and service engineers), you are in the best possible hands. Our instructors have many years of practical experience gained both at our factory and on-site with our customers. Our modern training space offers the optimum conditions for a quiet and relaxed learning atmosphere. In the adjoining exhibition space, course participants can put the theory they've learned into practice using MBO folding machines.

 

Beginner Folding Course

 

The beginner folding course is aimed primarily at people who have no or very little prior knowledge. In the theoretical section, we start with papermaking. Participants then familiarise themselves with the folding machines and the different ways in which the paper is folded in the machines. In the practical section we teach how to systematically set the basic fold types on the machines. At the end of the folding seminar, participants will also be able to localise and fix minor machine malfunctions.
