Introduction

Moving parts usually require some form of lubrication and learning outcome one examines lubricant types and lubrication systems.

Pressurised systems often require seals and gaskets to contain the lubricants and other working fluids. Rotating parts require bearings and mechanical systems incorporate fixing devices to hold the various components in position.
A range of seals, bearings and fastenings is examined in learning outcome two.

A prime purpose of mechanical systems is to transmit motion and power. There are many ways in which this can be achieved and learning outcome three examines a range of power transmission systems and components.

In learning outcome four learners are introduced to a range of plant equipment and systems. This includes an overview of hydraulic and pneumatic systems, steam plant, refrigeration and air conditioning plant and mechanical handling equipment.

Aim:
This unit aims to give learners knowledge of the components and systems commonly used in lubrication systems, transmissions and plant equipment. The general aim of this unit is to broaden and extend learners’ practical knowledge of mechanical engineering systems and provide a foundation for continuing work in related units.

Pre-Requisites:
None required, although experience of Mechanical Engineering is beneficial.

Duration:
The course is 2 days in duration.

Optimum Number:
A maximum of 6 delegates per course.

Training Aids:
PowerPoint slides & manuals, practice questions and assessment.


Learning Outcomes, on completion of this unit a learner should:
  • Gain an understanding of the purposes and uses of lubricants and lubrication systems.
  • Gain an understanding of the uses and applications of a range of engineering components.
  • Gain an understanding of the uses and operation of mechanical power transmission systems.
  • Gain an understanding of the uses and operation of plant equipment and systems.

Assessment and Certification:

In order to pass this unit, the evidence that the learner presents for assessment needs to demonstrate that they can meet all the learning outcomes for the unit.
A Roxby Certificate will be issued upon successful completion.
