Blaser Swisslube recently changed to online company tours and trainings since physical meetings are hardly possible at the moment.
Giving a background of the company’s current training series, Marc Blaser, CEO, Blaser Swisslube, explained, "From basics to expertise, from analysis to monitoring and maintenance, our machining experts and chemists help you fully capitalise on the potential of your machines and tools and turn your metalworking fluid into a key success factor – a Liquid Tool."
On April 2, 2020, they started with internal online courses, so that employees can use the challenging time for their further training. In the first five weeks, the in-house Blaser College held in total 176 live sessions, which were attended by over 3200 employees as well as business partners and customers from all over the world. Moreover, since April 30, the company has been offering live events for the entire machining world. In the first of a series of webinars, attended by over 1000 people, Bernhard Gerber, Chief Technology Officer, Blaser Swisslube provided a look behind the scenes at the headquarters in Switzerland. He talked to machining experts and chemists from Blaser’s technology centre and laboratory about the strong leverage effect of the metalworking fluid on crucial performance indicators such as tool life, cycle time, work piece quality and machinist satisfaction, as well as about the importance of regular monitoring and maintenance.
At blaser.com/webinars, the company offers in-depth live webinars for the coming weeks and months on topics such as coolant maintenance, microbiology and the underestimated leverage effect of the metalworking fluid on total costs. The recordings of live events that have already taken place are also available for viewing. Anybody interested in the power of the metalworking fluid can therefore easily refresh their knowledge and learn new things. Since Blaser Swisslube has had positive experiences with its online trainings, they will remain an integral part of the training offer after the corona crisis. "We will focus on online and live trainings to provide our customers and partners with in-depth knowledge and experience," Blaser concluded.
