Vullings likes to disseminate knowledge of flexible automation as widely as possible. To this end, company visits are organized, especially for students.
Jeroen Evers: "We sometimes think that automation is costing jobs, but the reverse is also true. We are aiming for people to discover our company and our way of working, precisely because it is difficult to find qualified staff. Machining metals often evokes negative images of hard and dirty work, although operators here work on highly technological machines.“
„Thanks to the higher volumes that we achieve through automation, we need to hire more staff. We need people with experience in milling and turning, because about 20% of our production is related to very specific products that involve tasks which would not make sense to automate.”
