SCHAEFFLER’S Repxpert Academy in Hereford hosted a training event for LuK Clutch Systems.
The Repxpert Academy played host to a raft of technicians last week, who were hosted by well-known Repxpert Alistair Mason, and were given the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of clutch systems.
At the end of the event, each member of the group was tasked with installing and testing a Schaeffler dual mass flywheel, which provided a great opportunity to put their days’ learning to practical use.
The Schaeffler Repxpert program is designed to give independent garages, distributors, schools and universities an insight into Schaeffler products. Repxpert membership is free, and a wide array of information is available, some of which is available for free, and some of which is behind paywalls.
Mason said: ‘The course was a resounding success for everyone involved, and I’m looking forward to the LuK 2CT Double Clutch training course on 19th March.’
Graeme Thompson, a technician who attended the training course, said: ‘I gained invaluable information regarding the manufacture, fitting and reasoning behind some of the more advanced clutches and dual mass flywheels. I was very impressed with Schaeffler’s commitment to the aftermarket and support it is giving the industry, most importantly to the people who are fitting the product.’
In addition to LuK Clutch Systems, Schaeffler also operates INA, FAG, and Ruville. Courses relating to all Schaeffler brand products are available through Repxpert.
