Technology training works – a return journey

10 June, 2016

With ‘flat-packed’ practical engineering training equipment and mobile rigs, all parts of the country are within reach to receive delivery of a fluid power or related technology course with ‘real world’ equipment – working models of either automated manufacturing or process plant. Other ‘templates’ can be produced to match various sections of a company’s operating plant, an especially useful investment if training is part of a long term personnel induction and upskilling development plan.

Tailored programmes

Tailored programmes can be developed as a result of company surveys, gathering information on both the on-site manufacturing processes and by assessing the training needs of personnel. The main emphasis is on practical competence and courses are generally project and work related, industry and applications based. Whilst the generic principles of any technology are key, it is production that takes priority as training can be geared to the company’s preferred manufacturers of fluid power equipment applied on plant, whether it be British, European, Scandinavian, Pacific Rim, or from the USA.

In some instances, engagement with a proprietary control systems manufacturer can be an advantage as they can supply additional specialist equipment, e.g. Robotics, PLC/HMI, SCADA. A natural extension of the methodology leads on to setting up a valuable supporting resource for new projects, such as plant additions and extensions or new manufacturing processes, providing operation familiarisation training.

With decades of experience in applying fluid power technology combined with mechanical engineering and electronics providing the backbone, the programmes are designed to suit all categories of workforce, from design engineers to maintenance and crafts people. From introductory seminars and workshops to basic, intermediate and advanced level, the main subjects covered include compressed air generation, distribution and treatment, pneumatics, hydraulics and mechatronics. Typical of the courses delivered on site include pneumatics applications for GlaxoSmithKline, hydraulic maintenance for BAE Systems, air compressor servicing for BNFL and PLC systems for British Gypsum.
