Amatrol’s Mechanical Drives 1 Learning System (970-ME1) covers mechanical drive installation, mechanical drive operation, motor drive alignment, and applications of various motor drive systems. Learners will use the mechanical drives training system and the interactive online mechanical drives curriculum to gain theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills for shaft, belt, gear, and chain drives using real-world motor drive components. This hands-on mechanical drives skill-building system covers topic areas like mechanical drive systems, key fasteners, power transmission systems, v-belt drives, chain drives, spur gear drives, and multiple shaft drives.

This hands-on industrial training system includes a 2-panel mobile workstation with a constant speed drive motor, variable speed motor, motor control unit, and multi-drawer storage unit that include real-world components for building and operating mechanical drive applications. Learners will practice hands-on skills like leveling an electric motor, calculating mechanical efficiency, installing a flexible jaw coupling, installing and removing a chain with a master link using a chain puller, and installing and aligning a sleeve coupling and shaft. Amatrol expertly mixes theoretical concepts immediately followed by hands-on practice to build the strongest possible retention and competency for learners. This method allows learners to simultaneously build motor drive conceptual knowledge and hands-on competency.

Practice Hands-On Skill Like Installing a V-Belt Drive

The mechanical drives training system features a 2-panel mobile workstation with a constant speed drive motor, variable speed motor, motor control unit, and multi-drawer storage unit. This system includes various components separated into panels for building specific motor drive systems. These panels include components for building and running shaft, belt, gear, and chain drives. Additional components include a prony brake, lockout/tagout package for safety skills, and a digital tachometer and alignment / measurement package for motor drive measurement and alignment skills. Learners will use this system to practice real-world motor drive skills like: installing and adjusting a pillow block anti-friction bearing and shaft, aligning two shafts using a straightedge and feeler gauge, determining allowable chain sag for specific applications, and measuring gear backlash.

Mechanical Drives Training Designed with Safety and Efficiency

The Mechanical Drives 1 Learning System is designed with safety and efficiency in mind. Amatrol’s new and improved design stores components on sliding trays under the training surface for easy access and storage. Each component fits within molded slots on these trays for easy identification and inventory. The work surface is shielded by protective cover that locks into place. If the cover is dislodged or removed, the motor drive circuits immediately stop.

Interactive Multimedia Motor Drive Curriculum

This industrial training solution includes an interactive multimedia mechanical drives course that integrates various types of learning methods to create an astoundingly engaging learning experience. Amatrol’s multimedia includes text with voiceovers, video, 3D animations, pictures, and interactive activities, quizzes, and self-reviews. Specific to this mechanical drives training course, topics include motor mounting, keyseat fasteners, shaft alignment, belt tensioning, chain tension measurement, and spur gear installation. Within these topics, learners will study objectives like how to mount and level an electric motor, the types and applications of keys, the types of shaft misalignment, how to determine belt tension, adjusting chain sag to a specified amount using adjustable centers, and the function of backlash.

Student Reference Guide

A sample copy of the Mechanical Drives 1 Student Reference Guide is included with the learning system. Sourced from the system’s interactive multimedia curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content from the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly bound book that students can reference for years to come. If you would like to inquire about purchasing additional Student Reference Guides for your program, contact your local Amatrol Representative for more information.
