On the 24th of May the students of FP of Mechanics of the IES Pirineos de Jaca, together with their teacher, visited the facilities of IBERFOIL. These facilities are located in Sabiñánigo (Huesca), and it is the only factory in Spain specialised in aluminium thin sheet rolling between 6mm and 6 microns.
The students were very interested throughout the visit and were able to see first-hand the inside of the factory, and what the reality of working in the world of aluminium is like. They were able to see IBERFOIL‘s rolling, cutting, separating, annealing and packaging processes, what their uses are and how they prepare the material to finally send it to their customers.
The IBERFOIL technicians who accompanied them during the visit informed them about the mechanics used in the factory, such as pneumatics, hydraulics and high-tech automatisms. They were also able to see the new Edelweiss Rolling Mill and the new Tension Leveller in full operation. The technicians also told them about the new IBERFOIL Integra project and informed them about the vital importance of recycling, the circular economy and IBERFOIL’s commitment to a sustainable future.
This visit was the perfect way for the students to get in touch with the industrial reality and to be able to bet on a job that is based on aluminium’s world. In IBERFOIL, they will find a future in line with their qualities and will be able to develop their professional value.
This action brings together specialised students and the labour needs of the factory, leader in the aluminium rolling sector.
IBERFOIL, committed to quality education (SDG 4) and decent work (SDG 8).
