Mississauga, ON — Regardless of the industry, one reality is that demands on rotating equipment result in demands directly on bearings. As a result, NTN Canada’s Technical Engineering and Maintenance Team is once again offering a three-day Roller Bearing Application and Maintenance Seminar that will cover bearing design, selection, installation, lubrication, sealing, maintenance and root cause failure analysis. It takes place at the NTN Bearing Corp. of Canada facility at 305 Courtney Park Dr. W., Mississauga, ON, May 15-17, 2012, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily.

If you design, maintain or repair rotating equipment, this program is a must to enhance your asset’s daily performance. The intensive course is presented using interactive lectures and hands-on workshops, and it concentrates on common bearing problems with a practical approach on how to avoid premature bearing failure.

Participants will also have a chance to visit one of Canada’s most advanced bearing manufacturing plants.

The presenters include Marcus Wickert, P.Eng., and Randy Ikenouye, P. Eng.
