Bearing System Design


Bearing System Design uses a combination of hands-on training, directed exercises, audio visuals, lectures and discussion opportunities. Specific topics include:
  • bearing theory
  • bearing components and functions
  • selection of bearing type
  • selection of bearing size
  • bearing dimensional tolerances
  • friction and speeds
  • bearing system design
  • bearing arrangements
  • lubrication
  • machine system health
  • bearing damage and causes
  • storage, shipping and handling

Course objectives

Upon completion of this course, you will gain an understanding of rolling element bearing, seal and lubrication technologies and theories used in selection processes for typical industrial applications, with the ultimate objective of improving the life, functionality, and operational reliability of rotating equipment.

Recommended for

Design engineers directly responsible for machine design incorporating rolling element bearings at OEM facilities or users interested in optimizing performance in existing machinery. Those interested in optimizing rolling element bearing performance in rotating equipment.
