Technology Club for Children Visits Gleason-Pfauter Maschinenfabrik

Jun 14, 2018

The Technical Club, “TeClub”, visited Gleason-Pfauter Maschinenfabrik in Ludwigsburg, Germany and learned about the building of gear manufacturing machines.


Once again, Gleason-Pfauter worked with TeClub and offered 20 elementary school students between the ages of 8 and 10 the opportunity to visit the plant in Ludwigsburg and to experience live gear manufacturing processes. The Management of Gleason-Pfauter, Dr. Ulrich Brahms and Karl-Heinz Kübler, emphasizes the need to get children interested in technology at an early age.


Gleason-Pfauter commercial trainees welcomed the students and gave an overview of the company and showcased the high tech products in a simple and easily understandable presentation.  Then, the students had the opportunity to tour the Gleason-Pfauter plant in small groups, where budding industrial mechanics shared gear technology knowhow and answered many curious questions. Afterwards, the students were asked to assemble small electric motors in the training center and make their own product. It proved to be a challenging activity that made our young visitors think and get creative. The students were visibly proud of their work and it seemed to be their favorite part of trip. Finally, the chairman of the works council concluded the visit with freshly grilled sausages and drinks.


Dr. Ulrich Brahms, Managing Director of Gleason-Pfauter, was delighted with the successful event: "We want to create tomorrow's employees' sense of achievement and give them the feeling that they are working independently and actively on technical products, true to the motto: 'We Are Doers!’.


The manager of the TeClub, Anette Gagsch, had lots of praise for the organization and execution of the event by the committed Gleason-Pfauter trainees. The TeClub is sponsored by Südwestmetall - Verband der Metall- und Elektroindustrie Baden-Württemberg.
