Introduction to Industrial Pneumatics & Air Logic

Course Description

This course focuses on industrial pneumatic systems. We use proven troubleshooting methods in this workshop. This workshop will teach the participant to troubleshoot down to the component level. The workshop does not cover individual component repair.

This workshop provides an introduction to air logic in the forms of; attached Symbology (logic symbols) and detached Symbology (ladder logic).

Participants are welcome to bring schematics into the workshop for coverage. Please have them provide schematics on 8 x 11 paper if possible so copies can be made for the entire class and to provide a transparency for the instructor.
