Our facilities include fluid power hydraulic and pneumatic rigs, SMC training process rigs SCADA, and pick and place rigs.
Our engineering workshops include micro controller rigs, soldering for circuit construction and 3 types of PLCs, including Siemens Mitsubishi and Allen Bradley.
On-site we have electric power feedback rigs, motor simulation rigs, motor testing and facilities to wire circuits using board systems covering all voltages up to 420.
We have access to Design Inventor, CAD, and 3D printing facilities, as well as live conveyors, pump sets, gear boxes, and training rigs.
We have strong links with regional engineering employers, including: Marelli (formerly Calsonic Kansei), ZF, Unipres, Adient, Gestamp, Liebherr, Connor Solutions and Signal Plastics. We work with employers, ensuring we can deliver courses appropriate for both current, and future workforce requirements. This has led to us developing programmes such as the manufacturing technician apprenticeship in conjunction with Marelli, utilising apprenticeships to address up-skilling and skills gaps within the engineering workforce.
