A 3 Day workshop covering all topics from introduction to advanced.
Register for 1 day, 2 days or all 3 days depending on your level of experience and interests.
Registration will be limited to 20 persons per day.
Mark Alspaugh, P.E. is the CEO of Overland Conveyor Co Inc. A Professional Mechanical Engineer, Mr Alspaugh has been working in the belt conveyance industry for 35 years. In 1996, he founded OCC has been heavily involved in the design, analysis and simulation of some of the largest and most complex belt conveyors around the world. OCC is now 50% software development and 50% consulting which means our software tools and consulting expertise goes hand in hand. But every tool we use in our deisgn projects, are availble to everyone. Get trained by the people that design the toughest projects and write the best software.
Anyone who does belt conveyor calculations or would like to learn how to design a belt conveyor. If you are currently using, or thinking about buying Belt Analyst, this is the quickest way to get up to speed and develop accurate engineering calculations.
All classes are offered in English.
US$495 per day.
