Course Description

MECHANICAL MAINTENANCE SKILLS COURSE 700: 4 DAYS This course provides personnel with the necessary skills to perform mechanical maintenance, including the removal and replacement of equipment (pumps, gearboxes, motors and power transmission systems) and identification and rectification of bearing faults within these systems. PARTICIPANTS Designed to benefit anyone required to undertake mechanical maintenance on production/process equipment. This course is equally suitable for production operatives or for craft personnel already involved in maintenance activities. COURSE PRESENTATION The course format is very much 'hands-on' - the emphasis being on the development of sound practical skills within the context of safe working practices. COURSE OBJECTIVES On completion of the course, participants will be able to apply safe working practices and understand the principles of preventative and first-line maintenance safely isolate mechanical systems when necessary to prevent danger correctly diagnose a range of mechanical faults and plan a suitable course of action understand the principles of power transmission systems; recognise, remove and refit taper-lock bushes, keyed shafts, belts, chains & couplings; install & align shafts; tension drive train components understand the function of lubricants and how to select correct lubricants for specific applications correctly remove and refit various types of bearings (roller, ball, etc) identify various bearing types, understand their typical applications & recognise common defects correctly remove and replace seals, gaskets and gland packing correctly use measuring equipment to identify different types of screw threads by means of outside diameter, inside diameter, thread form and pitch understand the operation of various pumps (positive displacement, centrifugal, hydraulic and air) and state typical faults and their symptoms understand the operation of various gearboxes, (helical, spur and worm-wheel) and state typical faults and their symptoms understand the operation of variable speed drives correctly dismantle and replace drive belts recognise various types of conveyor systems and their main components identify typical faults and correctly remove, replace and track a conveyor belt. Successful completion of the course leads to the award of Amicus / Technical Training Solutions competence certificate 700: Mechanical Maintenance Skills. This course is particularly suitable for our on-site consolidation scheme, which enables candidates to practice their newly acquired skills in the workplace.
