Training and maintenance: –
In light of the tremendous and accelerating progress in technological fields, production equipment has become more advanced than before and has included many systems necessary to perform its functions and functions such as: –
1- Hydraulic system: it includes hydraulic pumps, cylinders and valves and needs to monitor oil temperature, pressure and movement distances of cylinders – etc.
2- Pneumatic systems: the similarity of hydraulic systems in their work.
3- Thermal systems: it includes heaters, coolers and heat exchangers.
4- Electrical systems: It includes electric motors as well as includes all electrical control circuits, including switches and sensors.
5- Mechanical systems: it includes the means of transmission, and the elements of the mechanical connection between the different parts.
6- Automatic control systems: It witnessed a great development until it was done by a computer for each equipment.
The operation of the equipment has now proceeded as follows:
1- Different types of sensors are placed inside each system that suits the type of system (hydraulic – thermal – electrical – mechanical …. etc.) so that these sensors transmit the actual values of the changing elements such as (speed, pressure and temperature) directly to computer.
2- The computer is fed with the designed (required) values for these variable elements as well as their minimum and minimum limits.
3- The computer compares the actual values with the designed values and corrects any deviation in the actual values by sending signals to units that control the variable elements, such as pressure control valves – heaters and circuits operating circuits – – etc.
4- In the event that the actual values of the variable elements exceed the maximum or minimum limits, the computer will give an alarm, and the equipment may also stop.
5- In the event that the equipment robot participates in its work, the computer directs the robot to operate at the appropriate time.
6- This significant progress in production equipment imposed the necessity of good planning for training and maintenance programs. The rate of progress in reducing equipment breakdowns is a good standard for assessing the success of training programs.
7- In the absence of progress in the malfunction rate, workers should be retrained to raise the level of their technical knowledge and increase their skills.
Usually GB-TECH training for workers includes the following:
- Training in equipment examination that includes understanding the function of each part, its composition, the names of its components, how to examine it, the problems expected of it, and how to confront it.
- Identify the parts of the equipment that need to be attached, lubricated or cleaned, especially the sensors, and study the reasons for the accumulation of dirt and dust and prevent them completely.
- Basic skills for maintenance, such as principles of assembly and mechanical interconnection, and the use of tools and tools
- The basics of transmission (transmission elements such as belts, gears, etc.) and their maintenance.
- Study the seals (for oils and air) and how to assemble and test them.
- Keys and sensors, installation, testing and solving their problems.
Training curriculum approved by GB-TECH: –
The level of training should be gradual and include theoretical and practical aspects.
- Supervisors receive training on some basics of design modification of parts whose problems recur in cooperation with other departments.
- Experienced workers receive training in safety testing techniques and economic operation.
- The average worker receives training (simulation) on diagnosing and treating abnormal operation of the equipment.
- Lesser level and new workers receive training (simulation) on the basics of operation.
Training programs are gradual and cumulative and include study, discussion and practical training for a period of time appropriate for each component.
Training is evaluated through the gradual progression of targeted standards such as reducing the time of lubrication, inspection and cleaning.
GB-TECH has formed project teams that implement customer requirements under our company umbrella: –
The project teams work to improve the performance of the equipment by selecting the part or parts that cause the equipment to decrease in efficiency and work to solve its problems and pass the information and experience gained to other teams to use in improving other equipment.
