Bosch Rexroth helps JCB Academy students
JCB Academy students have completed practical training at the Bosch Rexroth HQ.
The students then travelled to the London Eye to see Rexroth hydraulics in action.
Bosch Rexroth, a Core Challenge Partner of the JCB Academy, has been inspiring students working on a hydraulics challenge which asks how the life of the London Eye could be extended.
The group of year 12 students, who are currently working towards an Engineering Diploma Course alongside their A-levels, received training from Bosch Rexroth to understand how hydraulic systems work, how they are maintained and the factors which determine maintenance plans.
After the practical training at the Bosch Rexroth head office in St Neots, they moved on to the Capital to visit the London Eye.
The pupils were treated to a special tour by Mark Robinson, Eye maintenance manger, who explained the Rexroth hydraulic systems that are in place.
The next day saw the tour continue with a stop at Tower Bridge where Rexroth hydraulics are also used.
With industry facing cost reduction pressures, David Halford, Welding Product Manager of Bosch Rexroth, explains why traditional AC welding users are looking again at adaptive welding.
