Representatives from Quali-Torc, our French distributor, Reptech Colombia, SAS, in Colombia, Amanti Tecnologias, Spain and Flousa SA, Argentina visited us throughout the month and received training on our full range of flange maintenance tools. In addition, end-users of our products, Doosan Babcock, sent some more personnel to receive bespoke training at our custom-built demo suite.

The course also provides an introduction to the HP series of sealed unit hydraulic hand pumps for use with our hydraulic tools along with an element of tool assembly with our spreading and aligning tools. Tool assembly is covered by Bob and Duncan Dore, our Senior Design Engineer who explains the concept behind the SWi spreading wedge and the assembly process of the tool.

The training, consisting of classroom based commercial / technical presentations and practical demonstrations / hands-on training, is provided to our distributors in order for them not only to be able to experience using the full range of tools safely but also to be able to respond to a wide range of customer enquiries and challenges faced by the industry.
