06/01/2011 - Roadshow - Rieter promotes Textile Students in Turkey
For the future of the textile industry, it is important to introduce the latest technologies to young textile students. Rieter takes on this responsibility and actively supports training of the students. Together with Prof. Erhan Kirtay of the EGE University, Rieter organized the first students’ seminar in Turkey. The seminar took place at the end of March 2011 at well-known universities in Izmir, Istanbul and Kahramanmarasch. Information was provided across a wide spectrum – starting with the 4 Rieter end spinning systems, continuing with the textile encyclopedia RIKIPEDIA and concluding with the Rieter Award, the coveted award for textile students.
Rieter is committed to supporting the promotion of young textile students. Experts with a well-founded training are important for the textile industry of the future. Rieter is aware of this fact and invests in the trainees. Great value is thereby placed on the transfer of knowledge. Roadshows, lectures and spinning documentation supply the newcomers to the textile branch with the latest knowledge. In cooperation with the EGE University in Kahramanmarasch, Rieter held a sucessful roadshow for students.
RIKIPEDIA – the online textile encyclopedia
More than 900 students from 12 universities and interested spinning mill experts were impressed by the seminar. Rudolf Meier (Area Sales Manager Europe) welcomed the students and took the seminar lead. He reported on RIKIPEDIA, a cost-free Internet service that Rieter provides for students and textile experts. Textile knowledge can be simply accessed online under www.rieter.com/rikipedia. Customers who prefer to read the contents in book form can order the 6 books under www.rieter.com/trmos and thereby not only acquire basic textile knowledge but also learn about the latest technical textile developments.
Rieter’s 4 end spinning systems
