MT 140 Assembly station: piston compressor



  • Fully equipped mobile teaching station for demonstration purposes. Provides an introduction to assembly techniques using a piston compressor as an example
  • Comprehensive and well-structured instructional material
  • Learning in a practical environment1
  • Highly suitable for developing interdisciplinary technical understanding


Technical Description

Compressors are at the core of compressed air generator plants. These plants are used where compressed air is used as a source of energy. Compressed air is often used instead of electrical energy, particularly in workplaces where there is a risk of explosion of combustible gases. The heat generated by compression is dissipated by cooling fins. The compressor is driven by a V-belt.
The mobile workstation MT 140 forms part of the GUNT assembly, maintenance and repair practice line designed for training at technical colleges and in company training centres. The station includes everything required to provide students with an introduction to a wide range of demanding assembly projects. A disassembled piston compressor is contained in the drawers of the trolley cabinet which also holds the tools and assembly aids, small parts and gaskets required for assembly. A second fully functional compressor, permanently mounted to the workbench, can be used for demonstration purposes. This enables references to be made between individual components and the complete assembled system at any time during teaching.

Large-format drawings suitable for workshop practice can be attached to the display board at the rear of the trolley. All steps involved can be demonstrated to, and then performed by, the students. The comprehensive and clearly structured instructional material, including a set of drawings, sets out the individual steps in detail. It also provides additional information on the areas of application, mode of operation and design of the assemblies.

The MT 140.01 test stand is required for functional testing after assembly is complete. Multimedia learning software MT 140.20 is also available.
