Precision bearings and condition monitoring

Tailored training on the mounting maintenance
and condition monitoring of rolling bearings

Schaeffler UK has released its new technical training course programme for 2016. Courses offered include one, two and three-day training for managers, engineers and technicians involved in the selection, operation and maintenance of rolling bearings, as well as condition monitoring, vibration analysis, bearing failure analysis and mounting of rolling bearings. While training takes a modular approach for ease of selection, courses can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of the customer where necessary.

Schaeffler UK offers a variety of training courses at basic and advanced levels to suit all delegates' skill levels. Courses include: introduction to rolling bearings; rolling bearing technology; rolling bearing mounting; rolling bearing lubrication; rolling bearing failure analysis; introduction to condition monitoring; bearings for electric motors; vibration analysis (Levels 1 and 2); and Detector III (Schaeffler's handheld vibration monitoring device).

Training is delivered by qualified Schaeffler engineers with a wealth of knowledge and many years' experience in the design, application and operation of rolling element bearings. Schaeffler specialists in vibration analysis and condition monitoring also provide support and share their technical expertise with course delegates.

Dr Steve Lacey, Engineering Manager at Schaeffler UK commented: "Our rolling bearing training courses are carefully structured to ensure that we provide delegates with the maximum support possible during the initial design process through to the successful operation and monitoring of rotating plant and machinery. In industries where the loss of critical plant or equipment can result in costly production downtime, an understanding of condition monitoring tools and techniques can help to minimise disruption and reduce costs."

Training courses are held either at the UK Schaeffler Technology Centre in Sutton Coldfield or on-site at the customer. The centre is equipped to provide both classroom-based and practical hands-on training for customers from every industry sector and at all skills levels, from maintenance fitters to designers of complex rotating equipment.

"When it comes to bearing mounting training, for example, there is nothing as effective as the hands-on approach. Many inexperienced maintenance technicians are unsure how to correctly fit rolling bearings and are equally unaware of how susceptible these bearings can be to damage and excess wear if they are not fitted appropriately. If you use the right tools, the task can be completed in half the time with half the effort," added Dr Lacey.
