COURSE SUMMARY

This course will use a mixed blend of theory and practical learning to explore how to install and remove ball and roller bearings, diagnose common types of failure and explore the different bearing types and their use in applications.

Candidates will learn how to maximise bearing life through an improved understanding of proper lubricating principles and functions. You will also participate in practical demonstrations using specialised equipment to correctly mount and remove bearings.

This course is ideal for mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, technicians, designers, and any other personnel that work with bearings on a daily basis.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Fit and remove a Cooper Split Roller Bearing on a shaft.
  • Fit and set clearances on a Spherical Roller Bearing in a split housing on a shaft.
  • Fit and remove a Deep Groove Ball Bearing on a shaft using an induction heater and mandrel.
  • Diagnose common types of bearing failures.
  • Gain a good understanding of bearing types and their use in applications.

COURSE TOPICS

  • Installation of ball and roller bearings
  • Removal of ball and roller bearings
  • Lubrication and lubrication software
  • Radial & axial loads
  • Common applications
  • Sealing arrangements
  • Radial Internal Clearances
  • Limits and fits
  • Identify and interpret bearing faults and failures

COURSE ASSESSMENT

The candidate will participate in a practical demonstration using specialised equipment to correctly mount and remove bearings. There will also be an internal written exam at the end of the course.

Candidates who complete the practical and achieve a +70% overall score in the written examination (multiple choice) will receive a certificate as proof of attendance.
