The new Advanced Servo Vibration/Servo Main Drive course is geared to teaching producers all they need to know about operating the system for maximum benefit. Producers operating cam machines with this system, and those who are considering the upgrade, are encouraged to attend. Advanced Concrete Masonry Technology further explores all aspects of the primary course. The three-day Executive Session, notes past participant Lynn Barnhart, Anchor Wall director of Licensing, “is a must-attend for any professional in the hardscapes or masonry business who wants to understand materials and the manufacture of masonry products.”
