Magirus Announces The Appointment Of 25 New Apprentices
Magirus Announces The Appointment Of 25 New Apprentices

25 young people began their professional futures at Magirus. Team spirit and enthusiasm for technology are important prerequisites. 25 new apprentices have been taking the first steps of their professional careers. They are occupied in eight different vocations, including vehicle mechatronics, industrial mechanics, and electronics or construction mechanics, both in Germany and Austria. Twenty-three of them are starting their professional futures at Magirus's joint site with Iveco in Ulm, located in the Danube River Valley. Two new apprentices have started apprenticeships in Kainbach (near Graz, Austria), as an administrative assistant and a chassis engineering technician respectively. In Ulm, the number of apprentices has increased slightly compared to the previous year. In addition, Magirus is again training young people in commercial occupations. important prerequisites An important part of the varied program was instruction in communication and team cooperation After the official welcome, the apprentices went to the Youth Training Center of the German Alpine Association (JDAV) to get to know each other better. An important part of the varied program was instruction in communication and team cooperation. These are important prerequisites for the upcoming apprenticeship as well as for work in general throughout Magirus, which is very practice-oriented. Furthermore, the idea that professions such as construction mechanics or vehicle mechatronics are more for men has been long obsolete. This is shown by apprentices such as Ronja Eisert or Anja Verena Krausz. fire engine production site Like Anja, Ronja has always been enthusiastic about technology, but was uncertain whether a technical apprenticeship was right for her. She thus wanted to first complete a practical internship with Magirus to find out more about the field. "The internship really encouraged me to apply for an apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic with Magirus. I was inspired by the idea of learning a profession that lets you construct vehicles that will later save lives," she says. As Magirus wants to educate even more professionals in the future, the move of the training workshop was organized this year. It is now located close to the fire engine production site. The apprentices played a significant role in reorganizing and equipping the new premises. The formal opening of the workshop will soon take place. Magirus offers young people who are fascinated by technology and like to "get their hands dirty" a large selection of training opportunities with very good prospects.

Magirus Announces The Launch Of TLF AirCore Turbine-Aided Extinguishing Turbine

The innovative, all-terrain tank pumper with the efficient AirCore extinguishing turbine mounted on a lifting device opens up new, previously unavailable possibilities for effective forest and surface fire-fighting. Premiere for the TLF AirCore: For the first time, Magirus presents the new turbine-aided fire-fighting vehicle to representatives of the press, partners and invited guests on 24 and 25 September 2020. After the unveiling, the new vehicle was shown directly in action on the plant's own off-road test track. The TLF AirCore from Magirus combines the proven AirCore technology on a lifting device with a 3,500 liter extinguishing agent container and a particularly off-road capable chassis and is therefore able to bring the extinguishing turbine with its own relevant extinguishing agent supply to the deployment sites better than ever before. fire-fighting solutions This new type of mobile vehicle adopts and further develops established, field-tested forest fire-fighting solutions from countries such as France and Italy in terms of performance features and equipment. With a height of around 3.4 meters, a width of 2.5 meters and an overall length of almost 7 meters with a wheelbase of only 3,690 mm, the TLF AirCore is compact and maneuverable. The necessary power and traction are provided by an Iveco Eurocargo FF150-32WS chassis The necessary power and traction are provided by an Iveco Eurocargo FF150-32WS chassis with an engine output of 235 kW (320 hp), Allison Transmission and the new generation Automatic Drivetrain Management System (ADM system). It complies with the latest emission standards, EURO Vid, with HI-SCR passive exhaust aftertreatment technology. This prevents undesirable cleaning of the exhaust system during operation. extinguishing agent supply Due to the ideal coordination of chassis, superstructure and extinguishing technology, the TLF AirCore meets all requirements for optimum performance and safety in off-road applications. To achieve the lowest possible center of gravity, for example, the tank has been lowered, while at the same time attention has been paid to a mass distribution as evenly as possible between the axles. Thanks to a high ground clearance of 390 millimeters with single tires, the vehicle masters high ramp and slope angles with ease and enables a high fording capacity of up to 860 mm. In addition to the pump & roll function, self-protection nozzles ensure maximum safety for the crew. Included in the extinguishing agent supply are 300 liters of self-protection volume, 3,000 liters of water and 200 liters of foam agent. These are used optimally thanks to the AirCore and its efficient water mist technology. foam proportioning system The AirCore MFT60-H extinguishing turbine can be raised by up to 800 millimeters and rotated or tilted through 360 degrees using a lifting device. The increased performance of the AirCore with a flow rate of up to 6,000 liters per minute enables maximum throwing distances and high penetration depths in both industrial applications and vegetation fire-fighting. The extensive use of wetting agents is also possible. The TLF AirCore controls the entire extinguishing technology from the protected driver's cab A new, additional monitor on the AirCore, together with the turbine, ensures that different quantities of water are spread in different directions, thus ensuring maximum flexibility. The TLF AirCore controls the entire extinguishing technology from the protected driver's cab. Spacious equipment compartments, the CaddiSys NetzMix foam proportioning system, a high-pressure pump and heat-protected pipes round off the vehicle concept. pressure control system In addition, numerous options such as a tire pressure control system, winches or an overpressure cabin are available. With the help of a trailer, the capacity of extinguishing agents can be additionally increased, enabling the vehicle to operate autonomously for up to 20 minutes. This represents previously unavailable possibilities for effective vegetation fire-fighting.
