PETKUS Academy: Optical Sorters Service & Recipe Development Training


In November, the PETKUS support team organized a training week on PETKUS' optical sorting technology. With strong international participation, we welcomed service technicians from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Spain, Kazakhstan and Romania as well as employees from Syngenta India to our headquarters in Wutha-Farnroda.

The aim of the training was to increase the availability of trained service personnel worldwide, across all time zones, for the numerous PETKUS optical sorters installed, as well as to increase customer proximity with shorter response times.

In addition to extensive practical training for service and commissioning on the various optical sorters (OS t, OS f, OS X), the German colleagues also provided theoretical background on the design, functional principle and recipe development of the OS series.

The social program with cultural highlights included a visit to the Christmas market in Erfurt and a guided tour through the snow-covered city of Eisenach.
