A large atten­dance of stu­dents of the FH Aachen could gain insight in the work of Quality Automation on 24th April, 2013. Various projects of the core capa­bil­i­ties of the QA team brought an inter­est­ing and enter­tain­ing afternoon.

In addi­tion to exam­ples of robot­ics , con­struc­tions sim­u­la­tion and visu­al prod­uct-and process con­trol the real­is­tic pre­sen­ta­tion of the projects was appre­ci­at­ed by the stu­dents. The imme­di­ate dis­cus­sion with the staff mem­bers of the indi­vid­ual spe­cial fields pro­vid­ed expe­ri­ences and infor­ma­tion first-hand.

We con­grat­u­late our employ­ee Uwe Bauerdick hav­ing passed the mas­ter exam­i­na­tion of Master of Business Administration. The cer­e­mo­ni­al hand­ing over of the cer­tifi­cate took place with­in the scope of the „ 5th Day of the Entrepreneurs“, orga­nized by the Aachen Institute of Applied Sciences e. V, in the rooms of the ENERGETICON GmbH, in Alsdorf.

Within the scope of the FH schol­ar­ship pro­gram a group of schol­ar­ship hold­ers will attend the com­pa­ny Quality Automation in Stolberg on 24th April 2013. Twenty stu­dents of all fac­ul­ties will expe­ri­ence here how indus­tri­al automa­tion projects are real­ized form the first step of plan­ning to the com­plete inte­gra­tion. They are accom­pa­nied by Prof. Elmar Engels, expert at the FH Aachen in the field of automa­tion technology.

Quality Automation GmbH enables a stu­dent of the study pro­gram elec­tri­cal engi­neer­ing with spe­cial field automa­tion tech­nol­o­gy already for the sec­ond time to pass the stud­ies in a more con­cen­trat­ed and effi­cient way. In addi­tion to the finan­cial sup­port the con­tact to the com­pa­ny is of major impor­tance for the stu­dents: study works, prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence and last but not least long time prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence of the employ­ers are a big enrich­ment for the young talents.

Every year the FH Aachen awards schol­ar­ships to stu­dents com­ing to 300 Euro a month. 
One half will be spon­sored by NRW and the fed­er­a­tion the oth­er by spon­sors of the econ­o­my. Next to finan­cial sup­port the spon­sors offer prac­ti­cal train­ings and pos­si­bil­i­ties for final projects to the schol­ar­ship holders.

The schol­ar­ship pro­gram is kept alive by the sup­port of spon­sors. Owing to the fol­low­ing enter­pris­es and insti­tu­tions the uni­ver­si­ty could offer 64 schol­ar­ships in win­ter semes­ter 2012/​2013:

In 2011 the com­pa­ny Quality Automation GmbH sup­port­ed the schol­ar­ship pro­gram of the FH Aachen for the first time. Within the scope of a so-called one year schol­ar­ship QA advances the stu­dent Barbara Voget from the fac­ul­ty elec­tri­cal engi­neer­ing and infor­ma­tion engi­neer­ing. Mr. Heinz Monnartz, Managing Director of Quality Automation GmbH, had the pos­si­bil­i­ty to hand over the schol­ar­ship to Ms. Voget on 2nd December 2011 in the frame of a cer­e­mo­ni­al act.

At this oppor­tu­ni­ty the fur­ther orga­ni­za­tion of the schol­ar­ship could be dis­cussed with the schol­ar­ship hold­er. A first exchange of infor­ma­tion was done when Ms. Voget vis­it­ed the com­pa­ny QA in January 2012.

The Quality Automation team again par­tic­i­pat­ed in the Dragon Boat Race on the Rursee, Eifel. The Quality-Dragons could improve their per­for­mance of last year and achieve the sixth posi­tion of 18 par­tic­i­pat­ing teams proud­ly. Even the youngest team mem­ber, Nick Biedermann, 5 months old, joined the event.

In 2010 two anniver­saries for 10-years employ­ment could be cel­e­brat­ed. Wolfgang Felser first employ­ee at QA and Christof Lutterbach were dec­o­rat­ed at this year´s Christmas Party. We hope that they will stay even longer and would like to say thank you for their out­stand­ing performance.

This year the team Quality-Dragons attend­ed the Dragon Boat Race on the Rursee togeth­er with friends and rel­a­tives.
It becomes notice­able dur­ing the race that we set a spe­cial focus on fight­ing spir­it and team­work in our com­pa­ny. Right from the first run it becomes obvi­ous that we are all sit­ting in the same boat. With the effort of mus­cu­lar­i­ty the Quality Dragons row into the sec­ond com­pe­ti­tion race. At the end the team can proud­ly record the 8th posi­tion of 22 com­pe­ti­tion teams.

We have much fun at that day and we were again con­firmed that one can achieve a lot with team spir­it and sol­i­dar­i­ty. We are look­ing for­ward to the next challenge.

The forum “Effects of the new machine guide­line” will take place in our train­ing rooms in Stolberg on August 27th, 2009, start­ing from 14.30 o’clock.
The ref­er­ees of this event, which is free of charge, are Michael Fritz and Heinz Monnartz from Quality Automation as well as Reiner Süselbeck, Stefan Knauf and Jörg Springsguth from Mitsubishi Electric.

Essentially they are talk­ing about the fol­low­ing chief contents:

  • Machine guide­line — back­ground and legal posi­tion, risk analysis
  • Practical con­ver­sion of the machine guideline

If you want to par­tic­i­pate in our event, so would you be so kind as to send us an e‑mail to gro@​quality-​automation.​de until August 21st, 2009.
It would give us a great plea­sure to wel­come you here in Stolberg.
