SUSS Training Center

After purchasing your equipment manufactured by SUSS MicroTec, we will support you by providing solid training for your team so that you can achieve optimal and trouble-free functionability from your SUSS equipment.

In our renovated and expanded Training Centers, we impart comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge to our customers. Our own employees and service technicians are also regularly trained in the Training Centers. We provide practical, hands-on training on our training machines in addition to theoretical explanations with the help of modern equipment.

Our experts will respond to individual questions and take the time to go into topics in detail. Training topics are customized to the specific needs of the respective trainees. The very small group size of maximum four persons allows for a very intensive learning experience.

Trainings on your own equipment on site are also available on request. Please contact us if you are interested in this option.
