Digital Twins, Industrial Robots, and Additive Manufacturing – extended Technology Training Offer at LILAMA 2  

Following the successful completion of the 80h online training on “Programming of Industrial Robots – Simulation with Digital Twins” and “Additive Manufacturing Processes – Design, Planning and Production”, 13 distinguished teachers from LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2) continued their training in the college’s Digital Technology and Education Centre – DTEC) from 22 January to 02 February 2024. The practice training was conducted by an expert in smart manufacturing, Mr. Thomas Andres from BENGCON a SIEMENS partner training institute in Germany. They focused on additive manufacturing processes in the industry in general and on industry applied programming of industrial robots with digital twin simulation for pick & place and machining processes. 

All LILAMA 2 teachers gained hands-on experience with digital twin technology, learned to simulate and optimise manufacturing processes. The 05 women and 08 men participants also honed their skills in programming and operating robots for machining and assembly tasks, as well as in applying additive manufacturing processes such as 3D printing and metal sintering. With completing the courses, the teachers can design and produce industrial products using SIEMENS NX software, further expanding their skillset. 

According to Ms Phan Thi Anh Tu – Vice Dean of Practical Engineer Faculty, “These practical training sessions are a great complement to the online training critical for us to broaden our perspectives and acquire the latest knowledge and practical skills in smart manufacturing technology with the real-world scenarios. By step-by-step mastering digital twin, robot technology, and additive manufacturing, the teachers can better prepare the LILAMA 2 trainees for the future of manufacturing and help them become more competitive in the job market.” 

The success of the further qualification for LILAMA 2 on robot technology, 3D printing and additive manufacturing underscores the importance of ongoing professional development for smart manufacturing technology, particularly in the context of Industry 4.0. As the demand for skilled workers in this field continues to grow, it is essential that LILAMA 2 teachers are provided with the latest training and resources to stay competitive and relevant, contributing to Vietnam’s economic development. 

The training courses were conducted in the frame of the Development Partnership with the Private Sector (DPP) “Vocational Training for Smart Manufacturing in Machine Tools”. The DPP is supported by the programme of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and jointly implemented by the cooperation partners Siemens Vietnam, LILAMA 2 International Technology College and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, represented by the Programme “Reform of Technical and Vocational Education and Training in Viet Nam”.
