I would like to thank you for all your work in preparing and organizing this entire training event. Many thanks also for the training of the diverse, specialist groups. The laboratory internships provided opportunities for the participants to apply the broad and comprehensive knowledge given by the PHS experts and trainers. These were given in a practical, straightforward and lively manner. The pleasant and open atmosphere during the course also encouraged learning and gave us opportunities to open lively discussions and ask endless questions! From this positive learning experience many people were brought together, and as a result, many firm friendships were made.

Thanks for a great experience at TU Graz, it was very well presented and also a great learning curve regarding Hot Stamping. Thank you for your generous hospitality and showing us your great skills. It was great to share our experience with our Welsh friends and the teachers on our course who were superb in every way. Hope to see you soon, take care.

Paul Welsby, Hot Stamping Engineer


The course presentations, structure and the post course activities were very enjoyable. Going onto the course with no experience in this subject and with no expectations, I was sceptical (to say the least)
But with, excellent communication and a positive atmosphere, learning this new subject was made almost pleasurable.
As always on business trips meeting up with other members of the Gestamp “family” is always eye opening and an opportunity to share experiences.
Again, thank you for your time, patience and understanding.

Our complete KOVINOtools team participated at the “Foundation Training” at the TU Graz, organized by GRUNDIG AKADEMIE the previous week. We were very satisfied with all seen and heard. Especially to mention is the trainer team from TU Graz which gave us all inclusive takeover of Press Hardening. The base of knowledge were the comprehensive presentations with a good mix between theoretical and practical key aspects and with enough time to place questions. It was our first organized training for Press Hardening Technology and we will definitely participate on some of the advanced trainings. Thank you very much for very good organization.


Miha Žnidaršič, R&D Manager


The Grundig Academy training we participated in was filled with the latest knowledge of the hot stamping process. Each session reviewed the theory behind the process, as well as practical examples and lab demonstrations that supported the information. The lecturers provided variations that have been investigated and the issues associated with each. The lecturers also provided their personal experiences with solving issues and troubleshooting hot stamping lines. Overall, it was very worthwhile training.

The Compact Training on Hot Stamping Technology organized by the GRUNDIG AKADEMIE was a valuable event for our North American suppliers. The content provided a great overview of the competence and depth of knowledge offered by the GRUNDIG AKADEMIE... The vital importance of detailed process control was clearly evident through all of the training programs and was very eye opening to many of the PHS suppliers.

After an extensive search for an independent source to provide training on Press Hardened Stamping technology, we chose the GRUNDIG ACADEMY, PHS-Module A course due to their ability to provide a combination of academic lecture on the science involved along with hands on exercises to solidify what has been learned. The experts providing the class room and laboratory work have extensive background knowledge in PHS, were easy to engage and open to addressing any and all questions raised.

The course met or exceeded the expectations of our diverse group which included specialists from Engineering, Quality, and Manufacturing. The course was well structured and the preparations made in advance of our arrival helped ensure a very successful conclusion. Well done.


Blair Longhouse, Engineering Manager


I will begin by saying what a pleasure it was having you at our facility this week. The knowledge that I have obtained from your instruction is very valuable to me and will make a big difference in how I perform my job here a Gestamp. I now have a better understanding of exactly what happens during the press hardening process and that will aid me in all future situations that may arise. I have been to many seminars, training courses, and lectures on many topics but the training that I received from Kassel is by far the best and most beneficial. Thank you for your work in organizing this training.

Specifically, in the course of our decision-making and development processes; to establish the “Press Hardening Technology” in our enterprise we have found the relationship between GRUNDIG AKADEMIE ... to be a reliable and competent partnership in our high level academic and technological trainings and seminars. Regardless of whether it is in reference to the definitive qualification in the seminar, individual workshops and trainings, or, the technical discussions leading to the evaluation; we have proven to be supportive each step of the way.
