Rolling bearings are precision made and reliable engineering components that are produced in millions and used in almost every machine today.  This is the reason for developing a particular branch of science that deals exclusively with rolling bearings technology. This course will provide fundamentals of rolling bearing theory, design, application, maintenance and failure modes.   Objectives
To understand fundamentals of anti friction bearings, their design, factors impacting their operation, their application, life and load calculations as well as failure modes.
At the completion of the course, participants will understand:
  • The function of a bearing
  • Components, terminology, and types of rolling element bearings
  • How to select a proper bearing
  • The factors effecting the performance of rolling element bearings
    -Operating environment
    -Maintenance practices
  • The bearing numbering system (Nomenclature)
  • Principals of proper bearing mounting and dismounting procedures
  • Importance of proper lubrication and practices
  • Causes and modes of bearing failure

Learning outcomes:

  • Execute preventive, predictive and corrective maintenance plans related to bearings and rotating equipment.
  • Design of bearing applications with respect to load magnitude and directions
  • Full understanding of bearing operating conditions and modes of failure.
  • Full understanding of bearing designation numbers
  • Acquire sufficient knowledge to critically examine existing bearing usage in your facility
  • Execute damage analysis of failed bearings

Target Audience
Engineers and Technologists involved with:

  • Maintenance and Reliability
  • Service
  • Machine repair
  • Design and project engineers and technologists
  • Plant and Facilities engineers and technologists
  • Millwrights
Managers and supervisors of aforementioned personnel

Mechanical engineers who need to refresh their bearing knowledge

Professionals who need to upgrade their knowledge of bearings

New graduates

After Participating in this Course, You will be Able to:

  • Gain practical knowledge of bearing application and operation that you will be able to take back to your workplace and immediately apply.
  • Select a proper bearing for any application.
  • Increase your productivity by being able to immediately identify adequate maintenance  routines including proper mounting and dismounting procedures.
  • Identify any bearing by type and size, with a thorough understanding of it’s operational behavior.
  • Add to your ability to identify causes of bearing failures, and failure modes.

Voya Djordjevic Dipl.Ing. (M.Sc), P.Eng. is a Mechanical Engineer with more than 15 years of experience in power transmission (mechanical drives, drive packages, reducer retrofits and replacement), complete conveyor design, bearing maintenance, damage analysis, mechanical design, plant maintenance and plant shutdown planning.  He worked for 12 years with a major Canadian industrial MRO distributor as Engineering Superintendent and Technical Services Manager. His engineered solutions (some single project values over 5M) and improved maintenance practices he implemented, can be found in many Western Canadian pulp and paper mils, port terminals, cement plants, mines, boats and other.  He has developed a unique knowledge on bearing failure modes, and large bore bearing repair. He is a Canadian citizen and lives in New Westminster, BC, and is a member of APEGBC and APEGGA.  He fluently speaks several languages.
