Some 14 millwrights or high-precision craftsmen who install, dismantle, repair, reassemble, and move machinery at Philippine Associated Smelting and Refining Corporation (PASAR) underwent the Precision Shaft Alignment Training from January 24 to February 15, 2019 at its LIDE Training Center.
The training aimed to equip the participants with the latest new technology in alignment applications and up the ante in developing maintenance capability to a level and quality where the plant’s machine safety, performance and availability will be at a benchmark level. The training furthers its goal at improving the rotating plant performance through a more time-efficient procedure.
Participants were handpicked from Asset Management Department, specifically from Primary Smelting Maintenance, Secondary Smelting Maintenance, Refinery/Dore Maintenance, SFP/Port Maintenance, and Acid Plant/Utilities Maintenance.
Millwrights contributed to PASAR’s commitment to continual improvement, and its vision of becoming a benchmark smelter.
CITE Training Officer Johnry Gac-ang teamed up with Bill Owen of TAFE Queensland to give the series of month-long upskilling training to millwrights.
