The Industrial Maintenance course is designed to give the student an overview of the electro-mechanical nature of industry. Even though electronic devices have made great inroads in industry, the mechanical nature of production remains nearly unchanged over the years. The expression "the wheels of industry" remains as true today as it did yesterday. This course will provide the skills necessary to install and to maintain the electronic and mechanical parts and machines that provide the ability of manufacturers to produce products, e.g. automobiles, appliances, etc. The course covers the following areas: safety, tools, fasteners, industrial print reading, belts and sheaves, chains and sprockets, gears and gear boxes, bearings, shafts, lubrication, seals and packing, pumps and compressors, fluid power, piping systems, and preventive maintenance.
