Bearing Seminars

Development of bearing suppliers and quality control during purchasing
5th of February 2018, 10:00 a.m. – 05:00 p.m.

Global sourcing of bearings opens plenty of opportunities for optimization of supply chains. However, any new supplier approval goes along with a certain quality risk. Therefore, this seminar is focused on the following subjects:

  1. Definition of quality requirements, technical specifications
  2. Approach during supplier visits and audits
  3. Requirements related to documentation of production
  4. Methods for incoming inspection
  5. Concepts for quality control

 

Basics of bearing technology
6th of February 2018, 10:00 a.m. – 05:00 p.m.

This one day seminar provides basic knowledge especially for design of bearing arrangements and for quality assurance during purchasing. Lectures shall focus especially on:

  1. Types, Properties, Concepts
  2. Basics of Tribology
  3. Raceway crowning
  4. Material properties
  5. Sample assessement

 

Bearing Failures: Investigation and analysis of practical examples
7th of February 2018, 10:00 a.m. – 05:00 p.m.

Identification and understanding of failure root causes is necessary in order to initiate the required counter measures. Therefore, this seminar shall show based on practical examples how damage characteristics can be identified and to which conclusion they lead. Main topics are especially:

  1. Methods for damage investigation
  2. Damage mechanisms
  3. Quality characteristics of bearings
  4. Examples from numerous applications

 

 

 

Gearbox Seminars

Preventive maintenance and condition monitoring of industrial gearboxes
8th of February 2018, 10:00 a.m. – 05:00 p.m.

In many technical systems, breakdowns of particular components lead to enormous subsequent costs as production will be affected significantly. Detection of damages at early stages can lead to minimization of downtime and helps to avoid secondary damages by which overall breakdown costs can be highly reduced. Therefore, this seminar refers to the following topics:

1.Investigation of lubricants
2.Regular inspection and endoscopy
3.Vibration measurement and analysis of obtained results
4.Automation of shutdown in case of detected defect

 

Supplier development for large industrial gearboxes and quality control during purchasing
9th of February 2018, 10:00 a.m. – 05:00 p.m.

Large industrial gearboxes are typically produced in small series while frequently, individual solutions are requested which require close collaboration between supplier and customer. Here, especially clear communication of requirements, verification of technical concepts and of course the general assessment of production processes are essential.
Accordingly, the topics of this seminar are:

1.Structure and content of technical specifications
2.Verification of technical documents such as drawings, stress and lifetime calculations of shafts, gearings, bearings and housings
3.Approach during supplier visits and audits
4.Requirements related to documentation of production
5.Methods for incoming and production related inspection


Basics of machine acoustics – reduction of noise by design measures
10th of February 2018, 10:00 a.m. – 05:00 p.m.

Avoidance of noise emission belongs to the important requirements of technical systems while noise protection covers frequently are expensive and go along with other disadvantages. In this context, it can be much more efficient to prevent noise emission by proper design measures instead of capsuling noisy machines. Such measures refer especially to design of housings for which reason the following subjects will be discussed during this seminar:

1.Basics of machine acoustics
2.Excitation forces
3.Structure born noise
4.Noise radiation
