Training rigs for Coca-Cola bottler

First Quarter 2020 News & events

The first on-site Bosch Rexroth pneumatic training rigs have been installed in Africa. The rigs were supplied to Nairobi Bottlers, the base for Coca-Cola Beverages Africa Kenya, by Bosch Rexroth Kenya, in collaboration with Bosch Rexroth South Africa’s training department.

The pneumatic rigs were manufactured and supplied by Bosch Rexroth Germany and assembled at the local Bosch Rexroth plant in Nairobi prior to installation and commissioning at Nairobi Bottlers in August 2019.

The training rigs are now a permanent installation at Nairobi Bottlers and are used to conduct pneumatic training for Coca-Cola Beverages Africa Kenya employees. The first such training was a three-module training course for Coca-Cola East Africa’s technical personnel covering the Theory of Pneumatics; Pneumatic Components; and ‘Designing On/Off Manual Pneumatic Systems to Achieve Given Functions’.

“The training proved highly valuable in improving the trainees’ understanding of how pneumatic components work and how to integrate them to make a functional system,” explains Thomas Mbugua, sales manager or Bosch Rexroth Kenya. All successful candidates were issued with the Bosch Rexroth Certification for Pneumatic Training.

Bosch Rexroth Kenya is currently in the process of registering this pneumatic course with the Engineer’s Board of Kenya, which will accord successful trainees with nationally recognised CPD points.
