Bearing Application Seminars

Bearing Application Seminars (Maintenance Training School)



This intensive 3-day course on the design, application and maintenance of anti-friction bearings, is presented using lectures and hands-on workshops. The workshops have been selected to highlight common maintenance problems which result in premature bearing failure.

In conjunction with classroom lectures, the participants will learn, in a hands-on environment, the correct procedures for mounting the following types of bearings:

  • large bore spherical roller bearings (including the use of hydraulics)
  • tapered roller bearings (mounting and setting end play)
  • deep groove ball bearings
  • cylindrical roller bearings
  • bearing units
  • small bore spherical roller bearing pillow blocks

The participants will learn the fundamentals of current bearing technology including:

  • bearing design and materials
  • cage configurations and materials: features and benefit
  • extra precision: what is required
  • bearing life: theory vs. reality

The program ideally is suited to anyone involved in the maintenance of machinery and specifically, those whose duties include the installation and maintenance of anti-friction bearings. The program is structured so that it is not specific to any industry.

Class Schedule:

May 14-16, 2024 in Mississauga, Ontario Canada

Class size is limited. All classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
