CM Motor School - 2 Day Intensive Course £375+vat

AC-ET acting as exclusive distributor for Columbus McKinnon Entertainment Technology (CM-ET) within the UK, provides professional training specifically designed to support the products on offer. Together with CM's dedicated full-time instructors, we can provide professional classroom based hands-on classes at their nationally recognized Centre of Excellence or onsite at your premises with a training package tailored to your operational needs.

Training takes place over two days and covers all aspects of the design and operation of Lodestar chain hoists, maintenance needs, inspection requirements, and troubleshooting.

The course has been designed to meet these 4 basic objectives:

  1. An understanding of how a CM Lodestar Motor works. How electricity flows inside. How the electric brake and travel limits operate.
  2. The knowledge of how to disassemble and reassemble a Lodestar Motor. When to inspect it and what to look for during a routine inspection.
  3. The knowledge and confidence to troubleshoot. You will learn what a primary or secondary power supply is and why CM utilizes this design.
  4. To give the best possible training in maintenance and repair of the CM Lodestar Electric Motor. 

Along with the two day course attendees receive a bound file containing current Lodestar manuals and a Lodestar almanac (full of historic information and quick reference guides).

A buffet lunch is also provided on both days, with refreshments available throughout the course.
