About the course:
This course provides an introduction to bearing technology, including bearing description, terminology, different types of bearings, and typical applications. It provides an insight into design and features of bearings and includes information on lubricants, fits and tolerance’s, mounting and dismounting, and discusses causes of failure and failure analysis.
Who should attend?
This course is ideally designed for Maintenance Engineers and Technicians, Service Engineers, Operations staff, Artisans, Managers and Reliability Engineers. Any person responsible for or involved with bearing performance and reliability will benefit from attending this course.
After the course:
Attendees should be able to select bearings, make design and lubrication recommendations, understand the principals of mounting and dismounting bearings, understand fits and tolerances, and trouble shoot bearing failure.
