Leobendorf, Austria | At your site
Operators, junior technologists, production managers, QA personnel and service engineers
German, English

The course will be customized to suit your individual needs. The training focuses on the wafer itself and on baking parameters such as temperature, baking time, viscosity ranges of wafer batters and batter deposit shapes. You will learn about ingredients, process parameters, machine settings and common quality issues. Batter ingredients will be discussed and tested. The classroom training will be held by two trainers to cover technological and technical issues. If the training is held at the customer site, a visit of the production line and a discussion of current issues can be included. These may be quality issues, improvements of the batter mixing sequence or a modification of the desired wafer texture.
