Material Handling/Fluid Power


Theory, demonstration and applications involving fluid power in a manufacturing environment. Fluid power systems in several types of automation and manufacturing environments are studied. The various equipment and modern methods of material handling are examined. Hydraulic and pneumatic experiments are conducted on industrial trainers. Fluid power principles and applications are studied and applied to machine tool work-holding and robotic end of arm tooling. Fluid power simulation software is used to draw and simulate hydraulic and pneumatic components and systems.
