About the Course

This course is presented by Hendrix Precision Maintenance.


Participants will disassemble, reassemble, correct defects, perform precision alignment for both in-line coupled & v-belt driven machines, and measure the noticeable improvements as common field & shop assembly errors are eliminated from our running and static simulators.

About the Instructor

Throughout their 40 plus year careers Phil Hendrix, Charlie Beale, and all of our instructors have successfully served in every position known in industrial maintenance.
Specializing in turning multiple failed maintenance programs into record setters in their own industry careers, they're now sought after processes are recognized as best in class around the world.
In 2001, our core business, Hendrix and Associates was formed, doing reliability consulting and teaching the basics of precision throughout the southeast. A couple of years later Phil was joined by machinist & maintenance leader Charlie Beale combining a unique hands on training approach with the often “overlooked and essential” management training elements to insure successful Implementation.
Today, Hendrix Precision Maintenance training is used by industry of every shape and size. With many industry experienced expert trainers, we develop and build Hands-On Running & Static Machines that we use to train your Craftsmen, Supervisors, Engineers and Leaders. With our coaching they will dis-assemble, correct common assembly errors and measure the results. Using their new Hands-On Skillsets, they prove to themselves that what we teach can greatly extend MTBF on all rotating machines; which drastically reduces costs while improving uptime and producing reliable operations.
Equally important, we teach Leadership, Operations & Maintenance, the critical Implementation Skills to Insure Lasting Change. These include the step by step processes, communication, key metrics, install / rebuild standards, follow-up, and the most important Expectations They Must set for mechanics, supervisors and engineers - so that they can achieve similar results. We call this process "FasTrack to Reliability™"
"Do it Once - Do it Right !"
