Target Participants

Though the seminar is primarily crafted for those with a mechanical craft background, it holds invaluable insights for production operators, engineers, and even first-line supervisors. Supervisors attending will not only upgrade their understanding but also demonstrate a commitment to supporting their teams in upholding the highest standards of precision.


In an era where precision is of utmost importance, it's essential that craft technicians have a solid grasp of the fundamentals of precision assembly and installation. In many professional settings, we've observed a growing gap in understanding and application of these core principles. The Essential Craft Skills 1 - Precision Assembly & Installation seminar (ID: 11260) is designed to bridge this gap, enabling technicians to better understand the delicate intricacies and immense significance of their roles in the industrial landscape.


This seminar provides more than just theoretical knowledge. With hands-on exercises and dynamic demonstrators, participants get a firsthand experience of how to effectively integrate precision techniques into their daily operations. The diverse topics, ranging from coupling assemblies to lubrication techniques, are meticulously curated to provide a holistic understanding of the craft.

Processes Covered

Topics include:

  • Coupling assemblies
  • Bearing types and applications
  • Belt drives
  • Precise alignment principles
  • Torque requirements
  • Common assembly errors and the distinction between reliability and runability.
  • Measuring tools
  • Lubrication techniques
