Bearing Seminars

Development of bearing suppliers and quality control during purchasing
20th of May 2019, 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

21st of May 2019, 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
22nd of May 2019, 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
23rd of May 2019, 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
24th of May 2019, 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
