Hydraulics: i4.0 Hydraulics at Bendigo Kangan Institute

Hydraulics technicians are in demand by industry - not surprising given the role the technology plays in mining equipment, transport and heavy vehicles, agricultural machinery and much more.

Bendigo Kangan Institute prides itself on offering trainees access to innovative and current industry-relevant resources as part of their education.

Last month we had the opportunity to commission Industry 4.0 Hydraulics Benches at both BKI’s Automotive Centre of Excellence and Bendigo campuses. These benches reflect the skills required by industry; integrating real-world components, PLC and digital display systems and are complemented by troubleshooting and proportional kits. Amongst other outcomes, these allow students to carry out experiments to design, build, maintain and trouble-shoot hydraulic circuits.

The training sessions were well attended by many of BKI’s subject matter experts who will be working with apprentices and industry alike to upskill them in this field.
