Energy saving in pneumatic systems
Energy saving in pneumatic systems

Save Energy – Save Costs. Energy saving is becoming vitally important for the sustainability of a business, with the high cost of energy. In large factories or small workshops, the intelligent use of every energy source and the right sizing and selection of components save significant amounts of cost, time,waste etc. Compressed air is a very important energy source for industrial production. The possibilities to save costs from compression to consumption of air are enormous. But everything begins with the skill of the people who work with it. This course focuses attention on cost-saving and improving the areas of compressed air production, distribution, preparation and optimisation of pneumatic circuits. This course particularly matches the training needs of those customers in conjunction with a Festo Energy Saving Service.

When several machines are combined we are dealing with an Integrated Manufacturing System (IMS). Information about IMS can be found in the harmonised standard EN ISO 11161:2010 Safety of machinery – Integrated manufacturing systems – Basic requirements.

Since December 2009 it is compulsory to use the “new” machinery directive 2006/42/EC. This requirement together with the harmonised standards could translate into a significant change in your organization. Other than several small modifications and additions, the new IIB declaration (referred to as the declaration of incorporation) is also introduced. Technical files and user manuals with information about transportation, installation, commissioning, adjustment, maintenance, disassembly, scraping and recycling must be created and delivered with the partially completed machinery.

Just like good functionality and economic efficiency, safety is essential to the success of any product. What is more, the European directives and standards require intelligent solutions and raise the level of professional skills required. As a result, there is a wide range of different products, information and qualifications for safety engineering. However, most of them focus on the control level. This course familiarises participants with integrated control and pneumatic solutions for the right commissioning, troubleshooting, set-up, maintenance and simple optimisation of a system.

Vacuum in handling technology
Vacuum in handling technology

Vacuum plays an important role in handling technology. Vacuum is used in positioning, transporting, lifting, sorting and many other applications. Knowledge of vacuum technology is essential for those working with these applications, especially those who design and maintain them, or need to select appropriate vacuum components.

In this course, participants learn about the basic specifics of vacuum compared to compressed air. The main topics covered are production of vacuum, selection of the right suction cups, and opportunities for cost reduction.
