Training on Flowrate Valves for Shot Peening in Germany!
PA microwaveValve and magneticValve demo kits that allowed real operation of the units
At the Peening Accessories Service Centre in Altena in Germany, the first training for Flowrate Valves took place. In order to address the launching of the new MicrowaveValve for nonferrous and ferrous media, the event was organised accordingly.
Purpose of Event
The PA Flowrate Valves for shot peening already have a strong foothold in Asia, with hundreds of units having been sold in Asia to countries such as China, Japan, India, Malaysia and Singapore.
However, one intention is to get a better position within the European market.
While the units can be easily integrated into either new machines or exiting equipment, initial support is still needed for first-time users in order to explain the different functions and possibilities. After that, when the usage of the devices has been explained and tested, it is unlikely that further assistance is needed. Peening Accessories invited selected distributors to join this event. A total of 12 people attended the training, coming from various countries such as France, England, Germany, Switzerland and Singapore.
For both valve types (microwaveValve and magneticValve), demo kits were available that showed the real operation. They were connected to a FlowMaster that can handle up to 4 valves at the same time. Every participant was asked to use the touchscreen of the FlowMaster to learn about the different functions and their meanings.
All in all, this event was a great success and will have been the first of many others to come.
