Brevini offer free gearbox training
New training programme designed to educate students and engineers about latest gearbox and winch technology
ACCORDING to Brevini, no engineer can be expected to hold expert knowledge in every field. However, it is important for them to maintain a reasonable working understanding of the technologies on the periphery of their speciality – especially if they are in regular contact with that technology.
Brevini have developed a range of training courses designed to refresh and educate both recent graduate and experienced engineers in the most recent developments of gearbox and winch technology.
Dave Brown, sales manager for Brevini UK, explained: ‘We originally developed training materials and courses to speed up the development of our new graduate engineers and meet the challenge to develop competent engineers within limited time scales. However, it quickly became apparent that many of our customers faced similar challenges and sought our help to develop power transmission knowledge within their own teams.
‘Requirements have ranged from basic overviews of the technologies and their application for specific market requirements to more in-depth training on gearing principles and calculations.’
Brevini have generated their own training courses based around the company’s expert knowledge of modern gearbox and winch technology. The aim of the courses is to educate attendees about power transmission studies, ratio explanations, gear design/engineering and gearbox selection. The course material can be tailored to fit with the requirements of the engineers in attendance, specifically to ensure relevance to the industry that they work in.
Mr Brown said: ‘Rather than seeing it as giving away our trade secrets, we believe that by spreading our knowledge we can create a deeper appreciation of our technology within the market and strengthen the relationship we have with our customers.’
All of the training courses are free and can be held at either Brevini’s UK offices or at their customers’ site, subject to the training scope and specific numbers involved.
