High-tech systems require a highly specialised expert knowledge. This not only applies to the R&D engineers but also to the employees who have to operate the plants. Only optimally trained employees know about the performance capabilities and availability of your plant. Therefore, our service range includes extensive training courses especially tailored to your specific needs.

Overview of our seminars/trainings

  • Employee-specific training for
  • Plant managers
  • Supervisors
  • Maintenance staff
  • Machine operators

Seminar and training course content

S7 Basic

The participant gets acquainted with performance characteristics, operation and components of the automation equipment S7-300/S7-400. Handling the programming software STEP7 as a programming tool, understanding the documentation and systematic troubleshooting shall give an introduction into automation technology. All topics are accompanied by thorough practical examples.

S7 Advanced

The knowledge and skills acquired in the S7 basic course are extended and consolidated,  enabling the participant to understand, develop and operate comprehensive programs. The participants will acquire the necessary knowledge to act quickly and correctly in case of a service situation. At the training devices the participant learns how to integrate digital and analogue input/output peripherals and field devices into the S7. This includes:

  • correct wiring taking into account the electrical interference resistance
  • expanding and changing the bus participants
  • implementing customized programs and performing diagnostics

TIA Portal – Basic training for beginners on the basis of SIMATIC

Tia Portal - The new program generation for Automation & Control Technology, maintenance and plant planning. Training goals: This course will make you familiar with the main features distinguishing the SIMATIC Manager from the TIA Portal and from STEP 7 and the basis of TIA Portal. Using practical examples, you will learn project planning and programming of an automation system with the TIA Portal software. User-related case studies and practical exercises will deepen your theoretical knowledge at a TIA plant model.

TIA Portal – Advanced course on the basis of SIMATIC

In the advanced courses you will build on the basics you learned in the basic training for beginners. You will get to know all essential aspects of special issues related to programming, operating and monitoring, industrial communication and Safety Integrated. After participating in this training, you will be able to work as an expert for special topics in individual sections of your automation project, such as SIMATIC structured programming in the TIA Portal (WBT) and bring optimal implementations forward with a solution-oriented approach. 

Robotics Basic und Robotics Advanced Level 1 + 2

In our robotics training you will learn in a few days how to handle a robot. We offer our expert knowledge to advanced participants enabling you to handle complex tasks with a robot. Of course you can also make a "flying start" from beginner to expert. Generally, our training courses always include practical exercises at a training robot and comprehensive theoretical content.


In our K-matic course we teach you the working method, operation and functionality of your new computer system to operate and monitor your plant. This includes:

  • inserting images, texts and buttons
  • changing error message texts
  • integrating VB scripts
  • plant-specific training for alarm logging, tag logging and data archiving

HMI Interface

With WinCC flexible, TIA Portal and SIMATIC S7 the participant learns at the HMI training devices as an interface between operator and plant to 

  • implement control tasks
  • create plant images
  • complement error messages
  • expand manual functions
  • implement the programs he created and to perform diagnostics

Ceramic laboratory

In our ceramics laboratory we provide theoretical and practical knowledge tailored for analyses, measurements and tests required for the brick industry. This knowledge helps to comprehend the properties of the raw material and the effects on quality and drying and firing behaviour. The customer and the KELLER laboratory staff member jointly perform the steps starting with characterising the samples on arrival and recording their properties, preparing the samples using a number of special devices and then shaping the material. Differential thermal analysis (DTA), dilatometer curves, and the determination of the grain size are trained in practice and the respective fundamentals of science are explained.
