London, UK based automation specialist Kinesys announce the first 2012 dates for their on-going product training programme, consisting of a series of two day courses and workshops covering the fundamentals of the technology and (in separate training sessions) both their Vector and K2 automation control systems.
The next two-day General Technical & Vector Control training course takes place on January 11th and 12th 2012 – for full details, please visit the Kinesys website : www.kinesys.co.uk
The training is held at Kinesys’ new purpose designed facility, which has been created as an integral part of the recent expansion to the company’s HQ in Hampton, West London, which has more than doubled the available square footage.
This will be the third of the newly launched regular monthly training courses, the first two of which ran in November and December and were fully subscribed. To ensure that everyone can receive sufficient and detailed attention, places are limited to 12 per course.
The Technical & Vector Control course focuses initially on the system configuration, – consisting of vari-speed Kinesys chain hoists, beam trolleys and Elevation 1+ controllers – using the Vector software control package and troubleshooting the system.
The first day is spent in the classroom learning the underlying theories behind the technology. This is followed by the practical application of what has been learnt, on fully working mocked up rigs in the training / demonstration room.
Students are able to practise and work ‘live’ on multiple truss systems and experience moving different objects with the finely tuned Kinesys system – known for its ease of use, flexibility and millimetre accuracy.
The Training is presented by Andy Hicks, who has led the Kinesys training team for the last two years, having previously worked as a trainer for Apple Computers and in technical support for Element Labs.
There is huge interest in and high demand for the upcoming courses as automation becomes an increasingly popular visual effect in all areas of technical production.
All dates are announced in advance on the website and interested parties can register to receive alerts.
