On May 21, Year 11 Engineering Studies students visited the Clark Equipment head office and manufacturing facility in Hornsby. Clark Equipment is an Australian owned manufacturer and distributor of equipment for the construction, infrastructure, agricultural, mining, materials handling and logistics sectors.

After a safety induction the students set out on a tour of the facility led by the Engineering and Technical Manager. The tour covered all aspects of the manufacturing, testing and maintenance of heavy lifting equipment. Students were able to see the subject of their recent studies of hydraulics and braking systems as applied in real life situations. They were also provided with a valuable industry perspective on engineering careers in the mechanical, electrical and mechatronics fields.

The final highlight of the tour was experiencing the latest Bobcat technology - a fully remote control excavator.  The childhood toys of many of the students had suddenly become life size!

Many thanks to Clark Equipment and their staff for providing this opportunity for Asquith students to experience a successful world class engineering operation in our local community.
