 Danfoss VLT Drives Training
If you already have Danfoss drive products on your site, Dane Energy can provide in-depth, official, Danfoss VLT training
This can be very useful if you have plant / machinery that is crucial to your business, such as water pumps, extraction fans, process/production lines, compressors etc. -
Good training can mean your staff can be your first-line of support, and this may make a real difference if minimal" down-time" is essential
There are standard basic Training Units
available and if we can take some time to discuss your applications and processes with you, we can "tailor" the course to reflect your drives on site, we would also discuss the level of training you seek this could be from a technician/maintenance engineer right through to design/project engineering
For your convienience we can run these courses at your site or a local hotel for instance.
For further details and pricing please contact us or contact Danfoss
