Becoming an expert in spinning with Rieter’s customer trainings

This customer training covers the entire range of machines, from blowroom through to winding.

Continuous learning pays rich dividends. Rieter’s customer training programs help unlock the full potential of the mill’s technical team and maximise the benefits of the products. It is therefore crucial to invest in the workforce’s know-how so they can utilise machines most effectively.

Rieter firmly believes that training goes beyond a one-time event, it is a continuous process that empowers mill technicians to achieve unparalleled success in their daily business operations. State-of-the-art technology, advancing automation and fast- changing market requirements increasingly call for expertly trained staff in spinning mills.

For more than 35 years, Rieter training programs have been designed to address these challenges. They provide detailed insight into the machines and how to minimise conversion costs to positively impact the spinning mill’s bottom line.

Professional Rieter trainers conduct the courses, bringing decades of experience along with a passion to impart knowledge.

The right training can make a world of difference

The programs help customers understand the value proposition of a product, explore its features and benefits as well as discover ways to leverage its capabilities. By facilitating a smooth onboarding process and ensuring customers feel confident in using the product, businesses can accelerate adoption rates, maximise machine lifetime and gain a competitive edge.

Rieter offers four programs, which last between two and seven days: Machine Training, Electrical Training, Process Management and Mill Management. Customers can request customised courses based on their needs, from blowroom to winding (Figure 1). INmill trainings take place on-site (Figure 2).

“The Rieter customer training team has conducted an INmill machine training for fiber preparation and draw frame machines at our mill in Egypt. The program was extremely valuable and effective. Our operating personnel highly benefited and started implementing the acquired know-how in their daily work which positively impacts the mill’s overall efficiency and productivity,” say Omar Fata and Ibrahim Fata, Mill Owners of Rose Yarn, Egypt.

INclass trainings are hosted in Rieter facilities in Europe or China which provide ideal and real-life learning environments. Participants benefit from hands-on experience on installed machines in well-equipped classrooms. As part of the mill management program, participants can interact with the Rieter management team.

Optimising the spinning process

Process optimisation can significantly reduce support costs. Highly trained customers are less likely to encounter problems or require extensive support. The process management programs can address frequently asked questions, troubleshoot common issues and provide step-by-step guidelines enabling operators to overcome operational challenges (Figure 3).

“The experts and their content were excellent and exceeded our expectations. We were trained in process management with a focus on control techniques in the whole spinning line. The knowledge gained has empowered the team to optimise the spinning process, resulting in an enhancement of the overall mill efficiency and the understanding of the processes. The online training support given by the Rieter winder team as well added value to us,” says Srihari Devarajan, Director Process Improvement, Parkdale Inc, USA.

Making more money by fixing economic leaks

Apart from the technical know-how, it is of utmost importance that the mill management team can detect hidden economic inefficiencies in the spinning process and take measures to control them. Rieter developed the mill management module that covers the key success factors of spinning mills: productivity, quality and conversion costs. The course connects theory with practice and provides insights into how to increase profit margins while producing consistent yarn quality.
