DRIVE TRAINING COURSES APPEAL TO ALL SKILL LEVELS

SEW-Eurodrive has kicked off its 2017 DriveAcademy programme of Australia-wide training courses. The courses cover a wide range of topics, and incorporate both basic theoretical principles and practical exercises. Each course is structured to prepare motor and drive users for tasks and problems they may face during any given working day.

According to Michael Stranieri, SEW-Eurodrive’s Technical Training Manager, the DriveAcademy is tailored to appeal to all levels of expertise. He says: “By encouraging open discussion and the sharing of ideas, even the most experienced participants can learn and take something away from these courses.”

Both general and product specific courses are included in the programme, providing insight into the implementation of some of SEW-Eurodrive’s most popular technologies. A key advantage is the ability to test all the functions of a drive in a safe training environment – something that probably can’t be done once the product has been installed on site.

“One of SEW’s most popular courses is the Movidrive B operation, start-up and troubleshooting,” says Stranieri. “The course is tailored for system integrators, project engineers, electricians and service engineers and covers everything from starting up a motor in VFC operating mode to complex analysis and detection of faults and fault finding.”

“The functions associated with the Movidrive B frequency inverter are customer specific and sometimes can only be discovered with hands on training,” says Stranieri. “The troubleshooting component is the most popular as we are able to simulate the majority of inverter and motor specific faults within the course and figure out the best methods of troubleshooting.”

The 2017 DriveAcademy schedule includes several courses during April, May and June.
