Date Announced for upcoming Pneumatic Training Course

Experts in Pneumatic Training

On the 26th & 27th of March, we are running the  first instalment of a four day training course in Pneumatic System Maintenance.

Overview

The course is aimed at those who wish to prove their competence in the maintenance of Pneumatic Systems in a Production Environment.

Course Aim

To enables maintenance staff to be effective in the use of Preventative and Corrective Maintenance strategies when working on Modern Pneumatic Industrial Systems and Components. We can incorporate your application specific drawings into the course to ensure good skill transfer after the course. The course in punctuated by quizzes which give the learner the opportunity to practice assessment type questions.

Objectives

AT THE END OF THE COURSE THE PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO:

  • Maintain the efficient operation of pneumatic systems
  • Interpret Circuit Diagrams
  • Identify standard pneumatic components and understandtheir functions and maintenance requirements.
  • Use Pneumatic Circuits to predict the behaviour of machines
  • Locate, Diagnose and replace faulty components
  • Explain the Health and Safety leglisative requirements for air powered machinery
  • Take suitable precautions when working with Pneumatic Equipment

Programme

  • Section 1: Principle of Compressed Air and Compressed Air Equipment
  • Section 2: Pneumatic Components
  • Section 3: Pneumatic Circuits
  • Section 4: Health and Safety requirements

Agenda

Day 1: Theory, units and principles of compressed air systems, compressed air generation and distribution, air service unit maintenance(soft-start), types of actuator and sizing, valve types and designations, valve operators(roller, pilot, solenoid), cylinder directional control, 3/2(nc and no),5/2(double and single), 5/3(cc,oc,ec)

Day 2: Valve symbols, basic pneumatic circuits, testing and fault-finding in basic circuits, predicting operation from circuit diagrams.

Day 3: Building, testing and fault finding more advanced pneumatic and electro-pneumatic circuits, theory exam 1.

Day 4: Safe work practices, Sensor and valve PLC wiring and troubleshooting, theory exam 2, sequential circuits, practical assessment, portfolio/colection of work activity.
Recognition of prior learning

If you have prior knowledge(through experience or training) of Pneumatics Systems and feel that you could successfully complete the assessments without attending the full course duration, then it is best to familiarise yourself with the course contect and do some online quizzes that will give you a guide to make an informed judgment of this.

Airpower’s Pneumatic Training course provides an Internationally recognised Qualification in Industrial Pneumatics Systems

 

 

 

 

Pneumatics Training Course  FetacIn December 2014, we provided a four day training course in Pneumatic Systems Maintenance. The aim of this particular training course is to enable participants to be effective in the use of preventative and corrective maintenance strategies when working with modern pneumatic industrial systems and components. This training course is aimed at Maintenance Technicians and people working hands on with pneumatics.   In this particular course,  we incorporate application specific drawings from the participants working environment. This ensures that our pneumatic training course has a practical foundation in real life examples. Participants from this course will receive a FETAC  level 6 qualification in industrial pneumatic systems.

Pneumatics Training Day 2014

This training course in Pneumatic Systems Maintenance is split into four sections.

  1. Principles of Compressed Air and Compressed Air Equipment
  2. Pneumatic Components
  3. Pneumatic Circuits
  4. Health and Safety Requirements

 

At the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Maintain the efficient operation of pneumatic systems
  • Interpret circuit diagrams
  • Identify standard pneumatic components and understand their functions and maintenance requirements
  • Use Pneumatic circuits to predict the behaviour of machines
  • Explain the health and Safety legislative requirements for air powered machinery
  • Take suitable precautions when working with Pneumatic Equipment.

 

QQI Assessment

Three written continuous assessments 30%

Two Practical assessments 50%

Final Written assessment 20%.

 

Airpower’s pneumatics trainings courses are lead by our fully certified  trainer, who has been specialising in technical training for over 20 years.  We run  regular  training courses starting with entry level courses for those interested in gaining an introduction to pneumatics right up to more advanced courses in automation and sensors.
