â€śI love to solve problems and learn more in discussions with my colleaguesâ€ť
Hongtao Yao joined HOERBIGER Drive Technology in Changzhou as a shift supervisor at Plant 7 in 2010. Today, he is the team leader for heat bonding and supervises 35 employees. In 2017, Hongtao Yao had an opportunity to visit his drive technology colleagues in Germany and learn to operate a new machine. The automated heat-bonding machine will increase production volume and is even capable of identifying the cause of any malfunction that occurs. During his four-week stay in Schongau, he learned to operate the machine, perform daily maintenance on it and efficiently solve malfunctions. During his visit, Hongtao Yao not only learned more about heat bonding, but also got to know a completely different culture.
Hongtao Yao is back in China now and is sharing his new knowledge about heat bonding with his team and colleagues. With the help of an expert from the German plant, his employees are learning to work the new heat-bonding machine. In light of the numerous new customer orders on hand, the ability to operate the machine will play a key role in the company's success.
His HOERBIGER adventure continues.
