"The "Connection" to Safe and Reliable Production"

Hendrix Precision Maintenance Instructors are now providing courses that will help you to keep things from coming apart...Literally!

Fastener Integrity takes a back seat until a failure occurs!

Hendrix Precision Maintenance Training has a course dedicated to the integrity of fasteners. For many years, fastener integrity has taken a back seat to more visible and what some consider more important issues, such as pumping efficiency, production maximization, or minimizing time to repair to name a few. Fastener Integrity has long been considered a labor-intensive task that can be assigned to the less experienced mechanic or laborer. However, Fastener Integrity is kind a like “atta boys”. It only takes one failure to wipe out the advantage of the many that were done correctly. Lack of fastener integrity can cause disruptions in production, safety hazards at a minimum. One fastener failure has the potential to put operations out of business.

Reviewing news headlines over the past several years reveals many unfortunate events that have occurred in industry. Some of which have been caused by inadequate fastening. The training curriculum that has been developed by Hendrix professionals is comprehensive, covering fasteners for rotating equipment, piping and vessel flanges, and structural steel.

This course can be targeted to your industry and can be adapted to the skill level of your workforce.
