Sacmi - I.P.S.I.A. Professional Training

Sacmi takes a leading role in high school courses at Sassuolo

For years SACMI has been attentive to its links with society as a whole and, more specifically, training–related problems: we were thus very pleased to take part in the program put forward by The Professional State Institute for Industry and Crafts (I.P.S.I.A.), DON MAGNANI of SASSUOLO. The school has established a POST-QUALIFICATION course with a professional curriculum that, in addition to the "ELECTRICAL INDUSTRIES TECHNICIAN” diploma, also provides “CERAMIC INDUSTRY ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS MAINTENANCE” skills. This two-year professional course of about 250-300 hours per year must necessarily include participation of locally-based ceramic professionals. The course is designed for 4th and 5th year high school students. For 4th year students the programme includes: - overview of a ceramic manufacturing company - description of the production process - listing of the main machines - analysis of some simple machines from an electrical viewpoint - final tests. This part of the course will be carried out by the technological laboratory and technical managers of Sacmi, so as to provide a basic grounding in key machines, such as the press, mill, spray-drier, fast drier, kiln, sorting units, moulds and special piece production lines. SACMI’s goal is to teach the students just what happens in a ceramic plant production cycle so that they will have the skills needed in the world of work. Two textbooks will be used on the course (Volume 1 ”Products” and Volume 2 “Processes”). These have been written by SACMI and have already been used for some time at University level too. For the 5th year class the course focuses on the electrical/electronic aspects of the main machines. The subject of routine maintenance and prevention is covered, and special emphasis is placed on development of troubleshooting skills. The course consists of 2 sessions: the first held by electrical/electronic design engineers and the second by the servicing technicians who carry out everyday plant assembly and start-up in local companies. SACMI’s effort in this sphere is a considerable one and it is essential to the development of tomorrow’s ceramic market professionals.
