14 Nov Students from SAISC return to Impala Bolt & Nut
Impala Bolt & Nut once again hosted 10 students from the SAISC (South African Institute of Steel Construction) School of Draughting
at our premises on 26 October 2017 to teach them about the practical aspects of fastener manufacturing.
Following the successful inaugural visit in 2016, this year’s SAISC Draughting School students returned to Impala Bolt & Nut where they were given a factory tour demonstrating the different aspects of the manufacturing process.
Technical Manager, Dirk Pretorius, explained the process involved in designing, manufacturing and installing fasteners, while Quality Manager, Ambrose Hlatshwayo, demonstrated critical inspection and testing procedures. Managing Director, Derek Cohen, gave a presentation to the students about current industry trends and the importance of commercial considerations when designing structures.
Overall, the students found the tour very informative and enjoyed the practical learning experience.
