Equip Yourself with Tools & Knowledge…

In the world of Reliability there is no shortage of tools, technologies, software programs, and metrics to help any facility achieve results.  However, you can buy all the gadgets and gizmos you want and pair them with cutting edge software but without the proper training you might get results, but they won’t be game changing. 

Imagine buying a brand new entertainment system.  You’ve got a 65” flat screen, Blue Ray dvd, surround sound and a fancy new remote that can be programmed to control all of it.  You see that it comes with a manual but you simply toss it aside because let’s face it, it’s just a remote, how hard can it be.  Fast forward to a month down the road where you find yourself still using a remote for the tv, one for the cable box, one for the dvd player and another to turn up the volume. 

Fortunately, in the Reliability community there is no shortage of training courses, books, articles, blogs, and manuals to help everyone achieve the maximum results possible.  At UE System’s we take training very seriously and work to ensure that every customer is trained to get the most out of our equipment and software. 

At this year’s
Ultrasound World conference I was thrilled and also proud to see four of my former Level 1 students featured as speakers.  Todd Fraser, Charles Strawn, Ron Tangen and David Zweigenbaum are all graduates of our Level 1 Airborne/Structure BorneUltrasound certification course and are a testament to the value of learning.  Todd’s presentation proved that with the right tool (an Ultraprobe 10,000) and the necessary training he could take his Proctor & Gamble facility to new heights and from 27 rotating equipment failures in one year to ZERO over the past three. 

For Charles Strawn of International Paper, his tool is an
Ultraprobe 15,000 and he has attended both the Level 1 and Level 2 courses and the results he shared were staggering.  He has not only saved his company over 4.5 hours a week in inspection time, but translate that to dollars saved and he’s looking like a King at his facility. 

Ron Tangen, who is also Level 1 and Level 2 certified discussed how just 10 years ago, his organization, Dakota Gasification, went from owning ultrasound and infrared equipment and never using it, to today where they not only have upgraded their instruments but have now implemented a thorough, effective and successful Ultrasound program.  This program saves time, energy, and money on a daily basis. 

For David Zweigenbaum of General Mills, his success came from learning how Ultrasound and Infrared complement one another which has led his organization to find even more areas for cost and energy savings. 

For me, this is what it’s all about.  Equipping our customers with the latest advances in Ultrasound technology and then working with them to get the most out of their investment.  As I watched these four former students up there in front of their peers I couldn’t help but feel a sense of accomplishment and I look forward to seeing what my next batch of students is able to achieve!
