Due to a demand for our expertise, we recently announced Compugraphics will be sharing our experience and offering a new workshop service providing tuition on a multitude of subjects. Some of our customers often need assistance with a variety of subjects such as specifying the right photomask, preparing data, photomask handling and much more. In January a group of young Thuringian apprentices from Numerik Jena, a developer of angular detection encoders, came into our Jena facility to learn about Microscopy and gain some insight into how to become Micro Technicians. The day was a great success with the Jena team providing both written and practical training sessions. The workshop was split into two subjects; 1) how to build and assemble a microscope and 2) the functions of microscopes. Olaf Seifferth, Process Engineer at our Jena facility, taught the group all about light optics, the optical laws and how to measure using a microscope.
The Microscopy training was provided to support the vocational education of the local youth and is part of Compugraphics taking social responsibility and helping the local community in the area. Jürgen Waldheim, the Jena facility’s Head of production and GM, has been working with the local examination board for Micro Technicians for more than 10 years now and was recently appointed for another 5 year term. Compugraphics is always interested in learning about new ways we can share our expertise with our customers. If you have any questions or there are areas you think a workshop can help then please get in touch.
