Despite technological advances and increasing factory automation, many industrial tasks still remain manual and must be performed by resourceful, competent personnel. Our hands-on training solutions support the development of important skills and abilities required for the installation, maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair of industrial equipment.
No matter the industry segment, a machine is a machine: basic mechanical knowledge of the different components and systems is required for efficient reactive and preventive maintenance.
Learning solutions from Festo cover installation of mechanical drive elements, such as shafts, belts, chains, gears, couplings, bearings, ball screws, seals, clutches and brakes, as well as assembly, disassembly, and installation of various pumps in working circuits using the tools and methods of the trades.
Piping systems carry water, steam, chemicals, or fuel used in heating, cooling, lubricating, and other industrial processes.
Learning solutions from Festo cover reading of piping schematics, calculation of pipe lengths, fabrication, installation, and testing of piping circuits made of galvanized steel pipes, hoses, PVC pipes, and copper tubes. Students learn to identify and perform test procedures on backflow prevention (BFP) devices.
Electrical distribution systems supply energy for lighting, heating, machinery operation, etc. in industrial projects and buildings.
Learning solutions from Festo cover installation of enclosures and conduits, professional wiring techniques, and concepts in electrical power distribution. Students also learn to set up and wire fire-alarm components, such as control panel, auxiliary panel, initiating devices (fire-alarm stations, heat and smoke detectors), and notification appliances (including horns), and accessories.
Lifting and moving large, heavy, and often unbalanced machines safely and efficiently is a common and basic task in industrial environments.
Learning solutions from Festo cover the fundamentals of rigging practices, including techniques to move machines and various loads safely using ropes, slings, roller pipes, dollies, gantry crane, hydraulic jack, and more.
