New electro-hydraulics training course

Home Business Management Education & Training New electro-hydraulics training course

BOSCH Rexroth South Africa has launched a course on electro-hydraulics, which it says aims to expand the scope of the training offered to customers and ensure they are equipped to meet the electro-hydraulic demands in industry.

Arthur Sanderson, Technical Trainer at the company said the course had been tailored to meet the electro-hydraulic educational requirements of anyone working in the industrial or mobile hydraulic industry, from technicians, mechanical fitters, earth moving equipment mechanics and millwrights to engineers.

The five-day course is hosted at the Bosch Rexroth Hydraulic Training Department, Kempton Park, Gauteng. It focuses on the electrical control of hydraulic systems by using push buttons, relays, proximity and pressure switches, etc., differing from the manual actuation of normal on/off hydraulics.

Sanderson said the course enables a better understanding of the electrical control systems and develops the candidate’s fault-finding techniques.

A total of 10 practical exercises are completed over the five days. By equipping technicians with the tools to systematically fault-find in electro-hydraulic circuits instead of just replacing parts until the circuit works, they can proactively prevent downtime and reduce company costs, Sanderson said.

“Without the physical completion of these exercises, the candidate will not have that ‘hands-on’ feel for the subject and practice the art of following the hydraulic and electrical schematic.”

Bosch Rexroth South Africa is an accredited training provider with MerSETA. This course is unit standard aligned (Unit Standard 13115) and is currently in the process of CPD verification with the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA).

It includes an assessment which consists of a theoretical and practical paper. The latter requires the design and assembly of an electro-hydraulic circuit. Candidates must achieve 70% on both assessments to be deemed competent.

“Interest in this course is high and courses already scheduled were booked very quickly. It is recommended that interested parties book a month in advance,” Sanderson said.

For more information or to book, call the Bosch Rexroth Hydraulic Training Department on 011 979 4630 or Sanderson on 011 396 7157.
