SIKE: How do you use the simulators?
Olga Petrovna: ─ We use simulators in the new curricula for the Professionalitet project. The internship takes place in the middle of the second year, at the time when children are not yet eighteen years old. And it turns out we can't go to the factory. So everything we purchased from you has helped us tremendously. The practice took place in college, they first studied all the equipment in 3D, then they studied the technology in simulators. If it weren't for the simulators, I don't know at all what we would do with them during practice!
Nadezhda Ivanovna: ─ After mastering the theoretical material, the students consolidate their knowledge during laboratory work. They get acquainted with the structure of the main and auxiliary equipment and the technological process of rolling on a wide strip mill and obtaining a galvanized strip on a zinc coating unit.
We're graduating control post operators. With the help of SIKE simulators, the students master the work of an operator, who monitors and remotely controls machines and mechanisms. The operator must know the design of the equipment, steel grade, assortment, and technological parameters that need to be controlled, as well as malfunctions, their causes, and methods of elimination.
During laboratory work, the students set up the equipment, start it using the control panel, monitor the condition of the equipment, and control the technological parameters of processing. At the end of the work, the activity is evaluated according to a five-mark grading system. Thus, students receive their first skills in mastering the profession of "Control post Operator". The operator is also required to be attentive, observant, and have a good knowledge of theoretical and practical material.
