Schwing Bioset, Inc. (SBI) held its Spring KSP Pump Service Seminar from May 9 – 11 in MN/WI. The seminar was our most well-attended seminar yet and, once again, led by Schwing Bioset’s Quality Control Specialist, Jack Koehler, and Service Technician, Chris Kohnen. The seminar and training is designed for Schwing Bioset customers to expand their knowledge on how to properly use and maintain their equipment, to help ensure they get the most out of it. This spring, there were 23 customer attendees and three of Schwing Bioset’s employees who attended. The course provides 24 hours of training credits toward quality training and education for the attendee.
The first two days of training were held in the classroom and covered safety, operations, maintenance, and basic hydraulics. The third day was factory training, which provided hands-on experience where attendees train with the SBI Parts/Service and Quality Control departments, working directly with equipment to learn about its use, maintenance, and using it safely. Some of the topics discussed include hydraulics, poppet valves, power packs, schematic reading, troubleshooting, screw feeders, sludge pumps, preventative maintenance, and much more.
Some feedback we received from the seminar attendees include:
“Very informative and all subjects were covered well. All around fun and above what was expected.”
“I am impressed. Schwing employees were over the top helpful and accommodating. I would find it difficult to improve the experience.”
“The training, evening events, and professionalism of the Schwing Bioset staff was excellent!!”
“The entire seminar was great. Very knowledgeable instructors.”
“The Schwing Bioset instructors and tech’s combine the training with enjoyment. I liked all of it.”
“Great class. Great instructors. Awesome. Everything.”
“Great seminar. Jack and Chris do an awesome job and show dedication to their trade.”
“Everything was great. An awesome time.”
