The cold hard fact is 99% of mechanics, supervisors, and engineers, have never been shown the proper ways to mount bearings, and worse yet, have learned a lot of poor habits handed down from others along the way.
This intense 4-day hands-on class covers all the correct tools and methods for mounting, dismounting, handling, & lubrication of bearings using typically sized shafts, housings, bearings for demonstration, and practice. We cover all of the most common types of bearings found in paper mills, steel mills, chemical plants, steam and power plants, and other industry. We will demonstrate the proper way to perform each task without sacrificing speed and show the results when incorrect methods are used, most having been adopted or had passed down.
We build on the bearing fit and tolerances subject covered in the Precision Maintenance Skills 1 course, expanding on with more exercises in vital measuring, housings, shaft fitting, and where to find the all-important numbers.
Each student will learn techniques to properly install:
Timken tapered roller bearings for gearboxes
Angular contact bearings in double, triple bearing
New Quadplex assemblies
Cooper split bearings
