SEAMER TRAINING UNIVERSITY: NOW ACCEPTING STUDENTS FOR ON-SITE SEAMER TRAINING!
We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has created some challenges for the face-to-face training environment. We take this responsibility very seriously, and have taken our time to evaluate and reinvent our training programs to provide extra precautions to protect your health and safety, as well as that of our team. When you arrive at our facility, you'll enter through a dedicated entrance, where we will take your temperature and provide you with personal protective equipment (PPE), including a disposable face mask, a full face shield, safety glasses, and disposable gloves. Hand sanitizer and disposable wipes are also located throughout the facility, and individual boxed meals will be provided. Finally, we have limited our class sizes to just 4 students, which means that not only will it be easier to maintain a safe distance, but you will also receive an even higher level of instructor interaction and hands-on opportunities with the equipment you are here to learn. Our certified instructors are excited to once again be able to do what they love and share their knowledge with you, and we look forward to seeing you in class soon!
A History of Excellence
Since 1968, Pneumatic Scale Angelus has proudly operated a Seamer Training University to help our customers achieve the best performance and longest life from our equipment. These one-week classes provide hands-on instruction and are taught at our Akron, Ohio facility by PMMI Certified Instructors. Our faculty has more than 100 years of combined experience, working with can seamers. Our goal is to provide the best education possible and develop a long-term rapport with our students that further enhances our working relationship. Each student will be given a certificate of completion at the end of the class.
Each 5-day session is devoted to a specific model of seamer. Students participate in lectures, examine cut-away component units and receive plenty of reference materials, along with hands-on training. Classroom topics include basic settings, adjustments, general maintenance, and production of Quality Double Seams. Question-and-answer sessions are an important element of each day’s curriculum.
To meet our customers’ demand for more in-depth training, our seamer university is proud to provide Advanced Seamer Training Classes. Each class is devoted to a specific model of machine, and during the comprehensive 5-day session, students will completely disassemble Angelus and Continental Seamers, rebuild them, and re-install all sub-assemblies. Classroom topics include preparation and review of the overhaul, evaluation of used parts, modifications to update machines, and review of equipment audit sheets.
