Kinder?s operations manager Charles Pratt, senior sales engineer Peter Wei and sales engineer Marc Selby presented sessions on flow and anti-wear, conveyor transfer points, dust sealing, belt protection conveyor guarding and belt tracking.
Students also had the opportunity to assess appropriate product for conveyor tracking/spillage and learn more about safety management issues in conveying.
The Kinder team also demonstrated the correct application of conveyor hardware with its mobile display trailer. Each student was able to closely inspect the correct positioning of equipment on a working conveyor and show their instructors and their peers clearly what does what on the machine.
Neil Kinder, the managing director of Kinder & Co, said that with staff training and development in the extractive industries as important as ever, it was important to keep members up to date on the latest trends and equipment available in the marketplace.
?Peoples? education can quickly fall behind on the more efficient ways of doing things and the importance of safety,? said Mr Kinder.
Kinder and Co has enjoyed a strong relationship with the IQA and the Construction Materials Processors Association since its inception in 1985 and prides itself on its innovative products that provide bulk materials handling solutions to the extractive industry.
All of Kinder?s sales engineers regularly appear as guest speakers at industry events and conferences, using their knowledge to educate the attendees.
