Practical Fundamentals of Pneumatics: Operation and Troubleshooting for Engineers & Technicians

THE WORKSHOP

Whatever your pneumatic applications, you can increase your knowledge of the fundamentals, improve your maintenance programs and become an excellent troubleshooter of problems in this area by attending this information packed workshop. Cutaways of all major components are brought to the sessions to visually demonstrate the components' construction and operation. Developing an understanding of "how" it works leads to an understanding of how and why it fails. Multimedia views of the equipment are given to give you as realistic a view of pneumatic systems as possible.

The pneumatics workshop is a comprehensive, highly practical and interactive workshop. You will have an opportunity to discuss pneumatic systems construction, design-applications, operations, maintenance and management issues and be provided with the most up-to-date information and best practice in dealing with the subject. Towards the end of the workshop, you will have developed the skills and ability to recognise and solve pneumatic problems in a simple, structured and confident manner.
