In this section you will learn more about Pneumatics Training Equipment and Systems, and the easiest way to acquire some for your training center.

 

What is Pneumatics?

Pneumatics refers to the concept of putting gases (such as air or other gases) under pressure to transfer power from one place to another.

This is done through a compressor which through pipes and tubing powers cylinders, air motors and pneumatic actuators, and other pneumatic applications.

The benefit of using pneumatics instead of hydraulics is that it is often cheaper, more reliable, more chock absorbent and safer. The drawback with pneumatics is that it cannot transfer as much power as hydraulics and that its less precise (air and gases can be compressed, as opposed to liquids).

Pneumatics is used in many diverse applications, such as dentistry, automotive air brakes, material handling, packaging, industrial robotics, construction etc.

 

Best practices teaching Pneumatics

Pneumatics technology is mostly taught in vocational high schools, community colleges, TVET colleges, polytechnics, universities and corporate training centers.

Sometimes pneumatics is taught as a standalone subject, sometimes in a cross functional course alongside mechatronics, industrial automation, robotics or similar.

A normal course for Pneumatics is covering the following areas:

  • Pneumatics Systems
  • The properties of gases
  • Air compression & distribution
  • Compressed air treatment
  • Pneumatic actuators
  • Directional control valves
  • Vacuum technology
  • Measuring pneumatic variables
  • Pneumatic applications
  • Explosion protection

Importance of Hands-on activities

Incorrect usage of heavy tools and machinery is the main reason for workplace accidents, and since the field of pneumatics is so closely tied to high pressure and machinery, adequate safety training is key.

Teaching Pneumatics is best done in a supervised environment where students get to have tactile / kinesthetic / hands-on experiences with the technology, which they will later encounter in the workplace.

This is best done with a set of different pneumatic training equipment.

 

Pneumatics Training Equipment

Pneumatic training equipment is a didactic system of instructional technology, including hardware and software components, alongside educational content.

There are various producers of pneumatics training equipment and they all have their own instructive approach to the learning process.
