Mississauga, ON — The next session of NTN Canada’s Roller Bearing and Maintenance Training Program will be held in Mississauga, Ont., Nov. 19-22, 2007. This intensive three-and-a-half day course covers the design, application and maintenance of anti-friction bearings.

The course is presented using lectures and hands-on workshops selected to highlight common maintenance problems that result in premature bearing failure. The program is ideally suited for plant production, maintenance and operations personnel whose duties include the installation and maintenance of anti-friction bearings. It is structured so that it is not specific to any industry.

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.

Participants will learn the fundamentals of current bearing technology, including bearing design and materials, cage configurations and materials — features and benefits, extra precision — what is required, and bearing life — theory vs. reality.
