Mississauga, ON — The Spring Session of NTN Bearing Corp. of Canada Ltd.’ Roller Bearing Application and Maintenance Seminar will take place May 10-13, 2004, at the company’s headquarters in Mississauga, Ont.

This intensive, 3-1/2 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 that result in premature bearing failure.

In conjunction with classroom lectures, the participants will learn 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 also 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
bearing life: theory vs. reality

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