The ultra-modern Academy facilities provide a model production line aided to simulate and map the processes of an actual working production line and industrial environment.
Renovation provided the state-of-the-art welding training facility with eight new mig-welding plants and plasma cutting units, improved extraction units and extensive measuring equipment such as digital callipers and micrometers, tap & die sets and oxy-propane burning equipment.
In a recent development training with new robotic welding equipment which aims to enhance the ability to produce welds of the required quality consistently, with an eye on the future.
Training too with the utilisation of ultra-modern welding torches which have a built-in extraction mechanism. This helps to ensure the health and wellbeing of the users and other employees and the wider environment
The production line not only benefits the Caunton Apprentices, it is also used in the deliverance of work experience for 14-16 year olds from a number of local schools, which to date has proved highly successful.
During the training process health and safety is constantly re-enforced within the controlled environment to fully prepare the apprentices for working production lines.
