One day course: 6 October

Location: Institution of Engineering Designers headquarters.

A concentrated one day course on the skills and techniques for the successful analysis of bolted joints and threaded fasteners.

The course is designed for designers and engineers who are responsible for the specification and design of bolted joints. This is a practical course--methodologies will be presented for solving everyday bolting problems encountered in mechanical engineering. It includes presentations on the latest theoretical aspects of the subject and uses a hands on practical approach to enable delegates to apply the knowledge gained to the design of bolting and fastening systems.

Who should attend?

OEM Designers

Design Engineers

Project Leaders

Engineers with responsibility for solving service problems

Engineering Supervisors

Engineering Managers
