High-Tech Training Academy

Strapping specialist Mosca Direct Ltd has opened a high-tech customer training facility, The Mosca UK Training Academy, as part of its recently-completed refurbished head office in Cotgrave, Nottingham, England. The company has offered customer training for many years at two levels – basic Operator Level, which covers the fundamentals of machine operation and daily/weekly housekeeping; and a second, more advanced Engineer Level, which teaches in-depth dismantling and reassembly of the strapping heads for fault-finding, repairs, maintenance and cleaning.

The new Academy training machines – a SoniXs standard strap way 6 test rig and head, a KSR test rig and head, SoniXs test rig and head and a MCB head – have been specially commissioned for this purpose and are free from machine housing, allowing working mechanisms to be visible and accessible. This ensures that trainees gain an in-depth understanding of the four key procedures of a strapping machine – magazine, feed, retraction and tension, and cut and seal.

Throughout the year, Mosca will also have different machine models situated in a new demo area. This allows customers to see machines in action and they can bring along their own products to test the various strap tensions and see the pack sizes that can be accommodated.
