Kinder & Company organised a training day for the students of Box Hill TAFE Cert 4 in Surface Extraction Operations to demonstrate the correct application of their conveyor equipment.
Staff training and development in the extractive industry are important as ever. Increased Government regulations and demand for up-to-date qualifications have seen the need for further training and information regarding the latest trends and equipment available in the marketplace.
According to Managing Director of Kinder & Co., Mr Neil Kinder, people’s education can quickly fall behind on more efficient ways of doing things and the importance of safety.
The training seminar for the Box Hill TAFE students demonstrated the correct application of conveyor hardware, assessing the appropriate product for conveyor tracking/ spillage and managing safety issues surrounding conveyors.
Charles Pratt, Operations Manager, Peter Wei, Senior Sales Engineer and Marc Selby, Sales Engineer presented sessions on Flow and Anti Wear, Conveyor Transfer Points, Dust Sealing, Belt Protection Conveyor Guarding and Belt Tracking.
The Mobile Display Trailer proved a useful demonstration tool, allowing each participant a close look at the correct positioning of equipment on a working conveyor, and demonstrating clearly the functions of each component.
Kinder and Co has developed an excellent relationship with the IQA and CMPA since the company’s inception in 1985 and prides itself on its innovative products that provide bulk materials handling solutions to the extractive industry.
All Sales Engineers from Kinder and Co regularly appear as guest speakers at industry events and conferences, using their knowledge to educate the attendees.
