Rieter promotes Textile Students in Turkey
Jun '11
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.

Rieter's 4 end spinning systems

The focus of the Rieter students' seminar was directed at supplying information on the 4 end spinning systems offered by Rieter. Dr. Stephan Weidner-Bohnenberger (Product Management Rotor Spinning) presented the audience with the relevant details and led a lively discussion with the students on the current status of rotor technology. Bert Rusch (Product Management Ring Spinning) followed up by lecturing on ring and compact spinning and their optimal fields of application. To complete the seminar, Marc Schnell (Product Management Air-Jet Spinning) reported on the current stage of development of air-jet spinning, one of Rieter's latest innovations.

Supporting textile trainees through the Rieter Award

Prof. Kirtay reported on the Rieter Award. Rieter has been supporting trainees in the textile field for more than 20 years with the annual granting of the Rieter Award, where the best students from all textile faculties worldwide are selected and can present their dissertations at the Rieter headquarters in Winterthur, Switzerland.
