Introduction:

Mechanical engineering technology is pivotal in the chemical, oil, gas, and petrochemical industries. This engineering discipline requires a deep understanding of mechanics and knowledge of other facets such as inspection, monitoring, and condition evaluation.

The engineering mechanical technology fundamentals workshop spans the spectrum from the theoretical principles of engineering to pragmatic aspects like the safe movement of substances and equipment sustainability. Mechanical technology engineering is further nuanced by material properties, static and rotating equipment design, assessment methods, and the integration of maintenance strategies and condition monitoring.

By exploring this extensive engineering mechanical technology fundamentals workshop, participants will gain a well-rounded understanding of mechanical technology and what mechanical engineering technology is in practice. They will also get hands-on experiences with mechanical technology tools and emerge as informed technicians equipped to handle challenges in mechanical technology workshops.

This mechanical technology course will emphasize mechanical technology tools, the mechanics behind a mechanical workshop, and mechanical technology engineering practices. Our workshop aims to present new mechanical technology developments and elucidate the definition of mechanical technology for professionals in the field.

Targeted Groups:

  • Technical and non-technical personnel in mechanical technology sectors like chemical, petrochemical, oil, and mechanical industries seek to grasp mechanical engineering concepts.
  • Maintenance and project engineers, production engineers, trainees in mechanical technician courses, and plant operators are seeking a foundational understanding of mechanical technology.
  • Those with little experience in the field need a comprehensive introduction to what a mechanical technology course offers and its applications.

Conference Objectives:

By attending this engineering mechanical technology fundamentals workshop, participants will acquire the ability to:

  • Employ Non-Destructive Examination (NDE) techniques for evaluating the integrity of static and rotating equipment.
  • Choose the appropriate materials for various types of equipment, considering the definition and application of mechanical technology.
  • Grasp the principle of operations and design elements in electrical and mechanical technology.
  • Implement methods to protect equipment from corrosion.
