Riveting A Joint - Production Technology Level 3
Hydraulic and pneumatic devices are all around us.
Hydraulic systems are used in manufacturing and production plants, such as the steel and automobile industries, to operate all types of mechanical equipment. They're used to move, push and lift materials in industries like mining, earthmoving and construction. For example, the brakes on your car are hydraulically operated; the garbage truck uses hydraulic power to compact trash.
A pneumatic system is a system that uses compressed air to transmit power. Usually, a centrally located compressor provides power to cylinders, rotary actuators, and other pneumatic devices through a system of tanks, pipes and valves. For example, trucks and buses use air-actuated brakes. Spray painters use compressed air to spread paint.
Through these video lessons you will learn the basics about pneumatics and hydraulics systems
