Energy saving in pneumatic systems
Energy saving in pneumatic systems

The issues related to energy saving are becoming more vital each day. In the factories or even in the 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 production to consumption of compressed air are enormous. But everything begins with the attention of the people who work with it. The training course focuses on peoples’ attention of costs and improving the areas of compressed air production, distribution, preparation and the pneumatic circuits. This training especially matches the customers’ training needs who had already received a Festo Energy Saving Service.

Safe and efficient water transport and distribution
Safe and efficient water transport and distribution

Safe water transport and distribution is essential for drinking water supply. Participants of this module are familiarized with control technologies in water transport to achieve the optimum distribution of drinking water to the consumer. For this purpose all relevant components need to function efficiently and form an effectively adjusted system. The module traces the flow of water from the source to the public. Pumps are one of the focuses, since they are widely used in water plants.

Pneumatics for water management
Pneumatics for water management

There is a trend among operators of water treatment plants towards the increased use of pneumatic drives instead of electric drives. The advantages in terms of cost, system reliability, reduced complexity, ease of use and maintenance clearly speak for this technology.
This three-day course gives the participants an insight into process automation in water-related plants, making an important contribution to the process reliability of these plants.

Valves in Process Automation
Valves in Process Automation

This course provides you with insight into process valve technology, including valve/drive selection based on materials and standards, and taking cavitations into account. It also gives you an understanding of entire valve control systems.

CoDeSys version 3 - A hardware independent introduction to PLC programming
CoDeSys version 3 - A hardware independent introduction to PLC programming

In order to master the fast-changing requirements of embedded and PC-controlled industrial applications, it is increasingly important to master and apply different programming languages. This is complicated by the huge variety of programming software available. Differences in user-interface, functionality and commands sets cause confusion and make mistakes more likely. CoDeSys – a tried and tested, globally-introduced hardware-independent software from 3S offers a Controller Development System according to the IEC 61131-3 with all defined programming languages independent of the hardware manufacturer. This training demystifies CoDeSys and gives participants confidence in using it.

Maintenance and troubleshooting of electropneumatic systems using PLC controls
Maintenance and troubleshooting of electropneumatic systems using PLC controls

This course allows you to extend your specialist knowledge of complex pneumatic systems and improve your methodological skills. Practical exercises on training equipment for setup, commissioning, troubleshooting and fault elimination facilitate the transfer of knowledge to your day-to-day work. 

Valve terminal CPX – Commissioning, modification and fault elimination
Valve terminal CPX – Commissioning, modification and fault elimination

Preconfigured complex systems with valve terminals and mechanical, pneumatic and electrical components bring numerous advantages but create new tasks for maintenance staff. This courses enables you to understand how pneumatic and electrical components work together. You will also learn identification and elimination of faults, and troubleshooting aids.

Mastering the basics of electrical drives
Mastering the basics of electrical drives

As electrical drives are increasingly used in industry, many mechanical engineers and technicians are confronted with this new and initially complex technology and are expected to be able to commission and maintain it. This is a daunting prospect for anyone that has not had proper training. This course aims to provide this target group with the attitudes, skills and knowledge they need to master the basics. On completion of the training participants are able to select the most appropriate components for a given application, safely commission drives, and locate and eliminate simple faults.

Mastering machinery safety 2
Mastering machinery safety 2

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.

Systematic safety improvement in pneumatic systems
Systematic safety improvement in pneumatic systems

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.
