New Hydraulic Simulator at Uniteam Training

June 2019 saw the arrival of Uniteam Training’s spick and span brand-new Bosch Rexroth type WS290 hydraulic simulator.

The double-sided WS290 has two pumps with load sensing flow-pressure controllers, which make it possible to carry out independent exercises on both sides of the unit with up to six students in attendance. The WS290 is an assembly of standard industrial grade components which can be used to carry out a wide range of practical exercises covering hydraulic components and any corresponding electrical interface connections. It has the ability to support training from the basics of hydraulics right up to the most advanced topics in mobile machinery, servo valves and cartridge valves.

Uniteam Training has developed a comprehensive basic electro-hydraulic training course (UT-OGI-076) which covers hydraulic principles, hydraulic systems and the functions of their components. After completion of the course, trainees will be able to understand and operate the electro-hydraulic circuit diagrams and perform commissioning and troubleshooting tasks safely.

Our basic industrial electro-hydraulic training is broken down into two sections: knowledge discussion and practical training. Knowledge discussion includes lectures, videos, written materials and discussion of 15 topics including pumps, control valves, cylinders and hydraulic circuits. Practical training for competency covers 18 project exercises such as throttle valve adjustment, pilot control pressure relief valves, commissioning and troubleshooting. This course is suitable for plant managers, engineers, technicians or draftsmen involved in fluid power systems. The duration of the training is four days.

The first of these courses was delivered to our regular training customers JFE Meranti in August 2019 and received very positive feedback from the trainees. Please contact us to discuss your training needs.
