Knowledge & motivation are the keys to success
How competitive advantages arise from sharing insights and experience
End consumer products are becoming similar due to the globalization of markets. This also applies to the manufacturing technologies that are used to produce a wide variety of products as economically or sustainably as possible. As a result, manufacturers are dependent on gaining advantages under growing competitive pressure, not only in product development, but in the knowledge of current and future production and manufacturing prerequisites. The key to success therefore lies not just in using the right technical equipment, machines and tooling, but with the employees themselves. Employees are the core interface within the manufacturing process who need the training, knowledge and experience to optimally handle of machine, tool and materials in order to use them to their maximum potential and success.
Leitz customer employee training & seminars
Leitz offers extensive training and education programmes for its customers worldwide, whether at the Technology Center in Oberkochen in Germany, or at the customer’s own premises. In this way, valuable and practical knowledge is passed on directly to the people who work in the manufacturing companies every day.
Everything a tool can do
Everything a tool can do
In addition to basic information about the technical, constructive and metallurgical properties of tools, knowledge about their suitability for certain applications is fully transferred. Skills in handling tools and information on performance limits and applications are taught in this course.
Optimal and resource-saving use

This user training serves to control and master operating conditions and parameters. In addition, it delivers insights on performance-limiting effects, measures to increase tool life and provides skills for detecting process errors.
What our customers around the world say about our training courses
Leitz tool training courses offer valuable input for daily work process which enable our customers to achieve optimum machining results. The WQ Solothurn Foundation learning planners and machine users received industry-leading information on woodworking from Leitz tool training courses, such as practical knowledge on the application on 5-axis CNC machines, material and cutting parameters.
Being responsible for woodworking tools within the Foundation, I noticed that many of my colleagues in production only received operator training from machine suppliers, but never any real user training. I really liked the fact that Leitz, as a tool supplier, can offer such training courses at short notice. After completing the training, the feedback from our production departments was very positive and many recommendations from the courses could be implemented directly.
Leitz has supported us since 2014 in helping to improve the skills of our production teams. This training is mainly for machine operators, plant operators, technicians and apprentices. Our aim for our employees is to enable them to analyze the machining quality shifts themselves in order to interpret the machine parameters, estimate the cutting sharpness of the tools and objectively influence those machining parameters. 160 employees participated in this training day and in regards to the high yield and the results on site, the Schmidt Group is only be too pleased to have Leitz at its side as a partner for this technical training initiative.
The training offered by Leitz has absolutely fulfilled our expectations. The training helped us to improve many areas of our production. In the past, we used our tools too intensively in their applications but Leitz showed us how to do it right. That saved us a lot of money in the long run and motivated us to keep working on our skills. We’re together with Leitz as a partner.
The Leitz trainings were a success for us and we felt very comfortable and welcome. We came with the wish to learn more about tools for CNC machining and how we can best use them for our applications. This wish was more than fulfilled. Above all, we learned how important it is to take a holistic view of our machinery and to get the best out of it through the tool solutions.
The professional use of tools and economic production at the highest quality level are relevant topics of our training. In Leitz’s practice-related training courses, future technicians (HF Holztechnik) are optimally prepared for their future careers.
Regular training sessions on the latest insights in production technology keep us up to date. These training courses were held within the Kronospan Group worldwide. Leitz is, for us, a guarantor for functionality, process reliability and economy. The training courses have definitely led to the desired success for our employees. We can therefore recommend Leitz without hesitation.
With Leitz training and education, we can further develop the knowledge and skills of our employees when it comes to the application and handling of tools. The great advantage of these training courses is, above all, to achieve better results and to minimize our reworking and machine downtimes.
Leitz has already carried out numerous training courses with our machine operators on site. This has enabled us to provide our employees with the latest information regarding use, setting or machining parameters and to achieve a significantly better use of the tools in operation. Our ideas were completely fulfilled and the feedback from the participants confirms the success of these measures. We are convinced that this is the only way to achieve optimum tool utilization, increase quality and reduce costs.
We have been working with Leitz for over 30 years. The training we receive at Leitz is very helpful and enhances the expertise of our team members. The knowledge Leitz shares makes everyday life easier for us because we can better understand the correct use of tools in the machining processes and thus increase the tool life of Leitz products in our factory.
