Modular for flexible expansion
Festo Didactic's training packages are modular in structure. For example, you could start with the basic level of electropneumatics and then move onto the advanced level, or start with the subject of electrohydraulics – the choice is yours. You'd like to explore a particular specialised topic? All equipment set components can also be ordered separately, so you can turn your own ideas into reality.
Position it – clamp it – done!
With the Quick-Fix mounting system, you can mount all components easily and securely on the profile plate and the profile column of a Learnline workstation. The electrical units are clamped into the ER frame and sequenced individually. The profile slots on the workstations are the same for all pneumatic, hydraulic and electrical units – a single investment, with double the functionality.
Everything where you want it – systematic storage
Most equipment sets are delivered in practical, Systainer-compatible equipment trays. This equipment tray fits in the drawers of the workstations. The large pictogram on the components, designed in accordance with the latest standards, provides clear instructions for connecting the components and ensures short preparation and follow-up times. When dismantling circuits, you can quickly and easily locate where the component goes in the equipment tray.
Connect it – power!
No compromise on safety: all electrical components and units are connected with 4 mm safety sockets or safety plugs. The pneumatic power is supplied by the connection of highly flexible plastic tubing to the Quick Star (QS) push-in fitting. The system therefore requires virtually no consumables or tools.
Your choice of training environment
User-friendly training environments for specific topic areas:
- Self-study phases with the training programs
- Designing and documentation with FluidSIM
- Practical implementation with the training packages and the exercises in the workbooks
- Functional testing and optimisation with measurement technology and FluidLab
Advanced courses made easy
New developments and trends in fluid engineering can be incorporated directly into our learning systems. New control systems can be integrated into the learning system using the EduTrainer concept. Basic packages can be easily expanded to include the subjects “Pneumatics measurement and control TP 210” or the new “Vacuum technology TP 230”.
TP 230 Vacuum technology
Handling workpieces with suction grippers has become an indispensable part of handling technology. It offers advantages such as the simple configuration of suction grippers and gentle handling of workpieces while also enabling rapid cycle times, and the capital outlay required is comparatively low. The training package TP 230 expands the contents of TP 201 to include the key area of vacuum technology.
TP 250 Safety in pneumatic systems
Function, efficiency and above all safety determine the success of plant machinery and automated systems. New directives and laws require intelligent solutions and raise the level of professional skills required. The systematic optimisation of a simple pneumatic system helps to identify hazards in pneumatic processes. The appropriate actions to reduce the risk can be implemented in a professional manner.
The workbooks accompanying the training packages contain project-oriented exercises of increasing complexity. There are also positional sketches, illustrations, videos, animations and cross-sectional drawings, which explain how things look in the real world. For a complete and expert treatment of the topic of pneumatics, the training also covers basic physics, technical calculations, safety, economic efficiency, analytical fault-finding and professional documentation.
Practical basic and further training using industrial components provides the confidence to apply the acquired knowledge in the workplace. The components are specially selected for the exercises in the workbook. Note: nearly all pneumatic and electrical connections are located on the easily accessible upper side of the components.
