Maintenance and repair of geared motors

The training is mainly geared towards maintenance staff who service or repair gearmotors on a daily basis. Focal points are an introduction to the different standard gear unit types and their designation and correct disassembly. Ordering spare parts is also a subject matter of the training. Adjusting and replacing the brake is quick and easy. Nonetheless, users often ask questions about the brake, its structure, function and control. This training will answer all these questions.
