The "School of Industrial Training and Education" ( abbreviated: SITE) in Rangoon is committed to the education of the people of Myanmar. With a wide variety of courses and educational programmes in a number of different areas, it contributes significantly to the development of the entire country. In order to be able to offer courses in woodworking, the school uses a Format4 CNC machining centre. The profit H200 is the all-rounder of our CNC machining centres. The machine has a small footprint and a smaller initial investment, but still has all the standard functions offered by larger machines.
The objective of the commitment is to provide the necessary know-how so that the students in Myanmar can produce workpieces with the highest precision by correctly operating the profit H200. In cooperation with the HTL Imst we organized a two-month carpentry workshop for two teachers from Myanmar. Since October 2019, the two have been in Imst and are learning the trade - with lots of fun and exciting insights about the machine and different materials. An exciting mutual project for both the future CNC instructors as well as the students and teachers of the HTL Imst. In November, a prominent visit from Myanmar was announced: the CEO of SITE, Dr. Win Zaw Aung, wanted to get a first-hand impression of the training and was immediately briefed on the machine and materials.
The two teachers will return to Myanmar in December 2019 to pass on their newly acquired know-how to their trainees. "It is my personal intention to make wood processing in Southeast Asia more popular and attractive. The selling of the machines is not the end of our work, it is also about training the locals. I would like to see more projects like this one in Myanmar," says Simon Spöttl, regional manager of the Felder Group for Southeast Asia.
