In addition to designing and installing dust control solutions for industrial facilities, workplace environmental control specialist Donaldson Australasia has become a solutions provider to the education sector training the workforce of the future with its technologies.
The company has positioned itself with technologies and solutions specialists to meet the tailored requirements of TAFE colleges and private training institutions.
For example, one TAFE responsible for formulating and conducting apprentice training courses in shop fitting and general carpentry for first, second and final year students established a comprehensive dust extraction system from the outset.
As the workshop constantly puts timber through processes, Donaldson’s dust extraction system captures and removes woodchips and dust while the system itself is designed to expand and allow new machines to be added to it without hindrance.
Typical TAFE woodworking shops are equipped with an electronically-controlled panel saw, a combination machine thicknesser and joiner, standard joiner, band saw, router, multi-boring machine, radial arm saw and manual saw in their classrooms.
Since new machines will be constantly adopted by these training institutions, flexibility and adaptable design are critical components of meeting budgets and future requirements.
Donaldson dust extraction systems with their ability to allow new equipment additions to integrate easily into the system, save time and money as it merely involves placing a new machine, adding the ducting and then configuring it to the control system.
