85-BP Main

A sample copy of the Basic Pneumatics Student Reference Guide is also included with the system for your evaluation. Sourced from the system’s curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. Student Reference Guides supplement this course by providing a condensed, inexpensive reference tool that learners will find invaluable once they finish their training, making it the perfect course takeaway.

Basic Pneumatics Training System | Hands-On Fluid Power Skills

Learning System: 85-BP

Amatrol’s Basic Pneumatics training system (85-BP) introduces pneumatic principles through a combination of Amatrol’s top-flight multimedia curriculum with hands-on industrial pneumatic skill-building. Topics covered in this learning system include single-acting cylinder circuits, pressure vs. cylinder force, and flow control valves, while the panels can be used to practice skills such as connecting and operating a needle valve to control actuator speed.

The pneumatics training system includes pneumatic cylinders, flow controls, directional control valves, an air motor, pressure gauges, rotameter, manometer, and air filters. These components are mounted onto Amatrol panels that are carefully crafted (hand-welded and painted) to provide a durable, well designed learning experience that will serve teachers and students for years. The skills acquired by completing the basic pneumatics training system will prepare learners for more advanced concepts and pneumatic applications, including Amatrol’s Intermediate Pneumatics (85-IP) and Advanced Pneumatics (85-AP) systems.

Industrial Pneumatic Components for Hands-On Skill-Building

Amatrol’s commitment to using industry-standard components provides learners with an opportunity to train on mechanisms that they will see on the job. Components included with the pneumatics training system are pre-mounted in an orderly, user-friendly design on stainless steel circuit panels with hand-painted shadow labels that makes it easy to identify and inventory components.

Expanded Options and Add-Ons

Alternately, Amatrol conveniently offers the Basic Pneumatics training system as part of the separate 850-P1 Basic Pneumatics Learning System (850-P1) or Controls Technology Learning System (850-PD1). The 850-P1 is a single-sided workstation that allows up to three learners at a time to practice pneumatics skills, and the 850-PD1 is a double-sided workstation that allows for six learners to work simultaneously. If there is a need to teach both pneumatics and hydraulics, the 85-BP is also included with the Basic Fluid Power – Double Sided A-Frame Bench with Two Hydraulic Manifolds (850-CD1) or Basic Fluid Power – Double Sided A-Frame Bench with One Hydraulic Manifold (850-CD2).

Interactive Online Pneumatic Training Course

Amatrol’s eLearning curriculum explains how basic pneumatic components are integrated into real-world applications such as robots, rock drills, and truck brakes. As an example, learners will practice on a pneumatic motor and study the principles behind how it works, while also reading about how it is utilized on pneumatic drills and small winches. Learners will study pneumatic gauges, valves, cylinders, and motors, including schematic symbols for each component. This Basic Pneumatics curriculum is presented in an interactive multimedia format that that combines text, audio, 3D illustrations, and loads of interaction to fully engage learners as they begin at the foundation of pneumatics.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.
