We provide comprehensive support in the area of pinch analysis and in the use of the PinCH software. An important task in this regard is the education and training of qualified engineers and specialists. Our training course "Energie-Optimierung mit Pinch-Analyse" consists of three modules which can be completed in their entirety one after another or individually. In addition to this course, the PinCH team also offers individual coaching and customized company training courses.
