The Pneumatics – Part 1 course was designed as a general introduction to pneumatic systems. It will teach delegates about the design construction and operation of pneumatic components.
Fluid power provides the energy necessary to exert mechanical force and drive systems. Starting with the theory of air and gas laws, pneumatic symbols and circuits, delegates then go on to select components and build circuits making the necessary adjustments for pressure, flow and sequence.
