www.hpmag.co.uk HYDRAULICS & PNEUMATICS November/December 2023 25 INDUSTRY RECOGNISED COURSES FROM THE BFPA NOT KNOWING IS NOT AN OPTION The BFPA have for many years been passionate about raising standards within the fluid power market and industry as a whole, with this objective in mind we have created a suite of valuable training courses now available. HOSE ASSEMBLY SKILLS COURSE The skills course will take the candidate through the many techniques and considerations essential for the safe production of a quality hose assembly and ultimately leading to installation. This two day course involves both the theoretical and practical elements in working with hose and connectors. SMALL BORE TUBING INTEGRITY COURSE Delegates are offered a valuable understanding of the complexity surrounding small bore tubing and compression fittings. The course covers generic manufacturers twin ferrule compression fittings, thread awareness, tube and pipe differences and the preparation process, tube manipulation (bending) principles, common installation and routing techniques. FOUNDATION SAFETY COURSE This course has been developed to provide an introduction into hose, connectors and the safe assembly of these components for industry use. During the day the attendee will gain a knowledge and understanding of safe hose assembly and if applied will only enhance the safety within the hydraulic industry and the attendee. HOSE INTEGRITY, INSPECTION & MANAGEMENT The key themes covered during the one-day course include: hose life expectancy; risk analysis; competence by way of a robust competence assurance system; identify, inspect & record; hose register – recording of a hose assembly prior to it going into service; and visual hose assembly (installation) inspection check list. HYDROSTATIC PROOF PRESSURE TESTING The course will help give the delegate a greater understanding of the dangers associated with pressure testing. During the one day course the delegate will learn how to safely test hose and connector assemblies by taking into account a safe system of work best practice procedure (HSE GS4 document) along with relevant pressure test standards commonly used within industry. $PVSTFT DBO CF EFMJWFSFE GBDF UP GBDF PS POMJOF Gor more information or to check availability please visit: www.bfpa.co.uk/training Please call 01608 647900 or email enquiries@bfpa.co.uk Camozzi Automation UK wins Industrial Innovation Award The Series D Valve Island, by Camozzi Automation, played a pivotal role in securing the company’s recent Industrial Innovation Award presented at the Robotics & Automation. Boasting Coilvision Technology and Industry 4.0 readiness, the company says its Series D Valve Island sets new standards in industrial automation. Camozzi Automation stood out as the sole pneumatic manufacturer among the nominees for this award. The company says that this achievement highlighted its dedication to innovation and excellence within the market and reaffirmed its commitment to pushing the boundaries of technological advancement in the field of Industrial Automation. The Series D Valve Island is an innovative valve system designed to deliver maximum flexibility and productivity across a wide range of industrial automation processes. With its single pneumatic and electrical subbases, the Series D Valve Island offers a simple and efficient solution for automating and controlling machines. This design makes it ideal for simplifying complex electro-pneumatic systems. It is available in both multipole and serial communication versions, and the Fieldbus module allows for seamless integration into the most advanced automation systems, making it a true Industry 4.0 solution. CoilVision technology has been developed to constantly monitor the operating parameters of the solenoid that drives the spool within the Series D Valve Island. Each operation of the solenoid is monitored and analysed to give you a range of data and information which can be further processed by software algorithms to diagnose and predict the health stats of the component.
