NTN Canada to Hold Roller Bearing Application & Maintenance Seminar


NTN Canada maintenance seminar

NTN Canada’s Roller Bearing Application and Maintenance Seminar will take place June 2-4, 2020, at the company’s headquarters in Mississauga, Ont.

This intensive, 3 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.
