Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton recently held an Instructor Symposium, June 18-20, 2013, hosted by Eaton’s Hydraulics Training Center in Maumee, Ohio. Eaton’s Hydraulics Group conducted this exclusive opportunity for instructors and educators who teach in the fluid power industry. The event was designed to expose industry professionals working with academic and commercial training operations to the latest in emerging hydraulic technologies and teaching methods.
Through a variety of training techniques, including lectures and hands-on lab exercises, participants engaged in topics such as: leaks, causes, cures and hose routing; systemic contamination control; logical troubleshooting; vehicle drive calculations; aeration and cavitation; thread identification and tube bending; and the cardinal sins of hydraulics.
Eaton also supplied all attendees with valuable training materials, including reference books, CDs and videos.
Eaton’s Hydraulics Group is recognized for its longstanding history in fluid power education, starting when the original Vickers’ Training Center was founded in 1945. Eaton acquired Vickers in 1999.
