Basic Hydraulic Training that Downsizes Downtime

If your company is like most, you've had to deal with:

  • • mechanics trying to fix hydraulic problems through guesswork, trial and error;
  • • warranty claims being denied because of contamination;
  • • overheated hydraulic fluid;
  • • unexpected or erratic equipment behavior; and
  • • short hydraulic component life.

The biggest problem we all face with hydraulics - the thing standing between us and what we want - is that most people who work with hydraulic equipment:

  • • don't understand how hydraulics work;
  • • don't know what hydraulic components do; and
  • • don't know what it takes to get the best possible performance from hydraulic components and systems.

You can solve this problem for your company by providing your personnel with Basic Hydraulic Training.

Not the "how to design hydraulic systems" kind of training, but rather training that teaches your personnel what they need to know in order to:

  • • do a better and faster job of hydraulic troubleshooting;
  • • prevent hydraulic problems
  • • get the best possible performance from hydraulic components & systems; and
  • • get the longest possible life from hydraulic components.

Is Our Basic Hydraulic Training Right for Your Company?

If you provide your personnel with our training, they'll learn a lot - including what hydraulic components do, how to prevent hydraulics problems, and how to get the best possible performance from your hydraulics.

One simple question can help you gauge whether providing your personnel with our training would be a good investment, or a waste of your company's money.

Imagine for a moment that you've received a new piece of equipment that uses 3 hydraulic cylinders.

If the answer is "no," then providing your personnel with our Basic Hydraulic Training can save your company time and money because your personnel will do a better and faster job of hydraulic troubleshooting, will know how to get the longest possible life from your hydraulic components, and will understand how to get the best possible performance from your hydraulic components and systems.

If that sounds like the kind of Basic Hydraulic training your personnel could use, please call me, Rob Fish, at (708) 328-6121, send an email to basicHydraulics@gmail.com, or click a Schedule Training button.

Potential Payback

After attending our 2-Day course, the maintenance personnel at a company in Decatur, Illinois used what they'd learned to make a $3,000 modification to a press that had been experiencing frequent hydraulic-related downtime. Over the course of the next 3 years, that $3,000 modification saved the company more than $105,000 in downtime and replacement component expenses.

Your savings may not be as dramatic or as easy to track, but if you're like many of our customers, your decision to provide your personnel with basic hydraulic training will provide your company with a quick payback on your investment.

Don't Wait

There are 2 reasons you should contact us right away to schedule Basic Hydraulic Training for your personnel.

The first is that you never know when a hydraulic problem will occur. And when your next hydraulic problem occurs, how much time and money will your company lose as your mechanics try to fix the problem through guesswork, trial, and error?

The second reason is that the most common cause of hydraulic component failure is contamination. Particles of contamination smaller than a white blood cell can either wear down a hydraulic component's internal parts like sandpaper wears down a piece of wood, or chip off pieces of the internal parts as if they were tiny little chisels.

As those particles of contamination damage your hydraulic components, the damage generates additional contamination that circulates through your hydraulic system and can damage other hydraulic components.

Just like a cavity in a tooth, contamination isn't going to fix itself. And, also like a cavity in a tooth, the longer you wait to fix the problem, the more difficult (and expensive) it will be to fix the problem. The sooner your personnel learn what it takes to get the longest possible life and best possible performance from your hydraulic components, the better your chance of avoiding the costs of future hydraulic component failures.

When it comes to hydraulics, an ounce of prevention is a heck of a lot better than a pound of cure. Please contact us and schedule your training today - we'd really like to help you solve your hydraulic problems.
