Since September 2015, students at the HTL (Polytechnic Glass) Kramsach in Tirol have been using a LiSEC cutting table ‘base CUT’.
Apart from industrial enterprises it is also particularly important for schools to get quality by means of modern and state-of-the-art machinery. After more than 20 years of use, the HTL Kramsach replaced the previous manually operated cutting table with a LiSEC ‘base CUT’. After having compared different manufacturers in the market, the HTL quickly opted for the Austrian machine manufacturer. Originally known as an industrial brand for the high-end sector as far as quantity, quality and price, LiSEC with its base series now provides relatively affordable machinery for newcomers in the industry, small-scale enterprises or use in schools. For the headmaster, Dr. Ursula Pittl-Thapa, a former graduate of the polytechnic herself, the LiSEC cutting table was “Love at first sight“.
Established in 1948, the educational institution comprises a polytechnic for glass, the faculties glass and technology, glass and design as well as, for three years now, a HTL chemistry. So far there have been 361 graduates of the HTL Kramsach, who are very sought after in the glass industry. They cover a comprehensive spectrum of jobs, from restoration specialist to the consultant in statics and façade engineering. “The base beginner’s model is ideal for polytechnics and/or vocational schools in terms of price/performance and it provides “LiSEC quality at an affordable price”, says the native of Innsbruck who herself has processed glass for a while and who has “dragged around quite some glass sheets”. Due to the education purposes and the operation by inexperienced persons, the high degree of service of LiSEC constituted a critical purchase criterion when it came to the decision.
Klaus Preyler, LiSEC Sales Director, who handled the sale said “During their education, the students in Kramsach are now learning how to handle the best machines in the market– best in glass processing, from the outset!“
