Enerpac develops hydraulic tools webinar training programme

16 June, 2017

High pressure hydraulics tools specialist, Enerpac, is developing a webinar programme for distributors, customers and anyone else who regularly uses hydraulic tools.


The webinar series builds on the growth of Enerpac’s Training Academies, which are now operating in 5 regional centres across the globe.

“Operating high-pressure hydraulic tools requires sound knowledge of how they work and how they should be maintained,” said Eric Joon, head of training at Enerpac. “Correct use of these tools increases safety and reduces risk – both for the operator and for the environment in which the tools are used. Having the right training enables the operator to use the tools safely and properly.”

Joon established the first Training Academy in Ede, The Netherlands, in June 2012, followed by Academies in Columbus, Wisconsin (USA), Hosur (India), Singapore, and latterly Sydney (Australia). Academies feature a designated classroom, product demonstration area and workshop equipped with dedicated tools for practical training, tool repair and service training.

Hands-on

All training courses are led by a qualified Enerpac trainer and are highly interactive with a strong hands-on element. At the end of the course participants are given a written or practical exam.

Enerpac Academy courses include: Bolting Intro. Training – Explanation of torquing and tensioning techniques, Controlled Bolting Training – Bolting theory, use of hydraulic torque wrenches and pumps, and Industrial Tools Service and Repair Training. Tailored training courses are also available.

Enerpac has begun to roll-out a series of introductory webinars on topics such as, What is Tensioning? And Safety and Hydraulics. There are also specialist webinars on Workholding Air/Oil Booster Product Training, Air Driven Hydraulic Power Unit and Activator Wand & Booster Training.

New dimension

“The webinars bring a new dimension to our training programmes,” said Joon. “With the growing number of Academy trained engineers in the field, we recognised that there was a need for on-going training in more advanced techniques that reflect the capability of Enerpac hydraulic tools.”

Webinars are scheduled monthly and include supporting documentation. Details of the latest webinars can be found on the company’s website:
