Antifriction bearings are precision mechanical elements in any machines and equipment for reliable functioning of rotary motions. It defines the speed, magnitude and direction of the loads, deflections and minimal vibration of the shaft with pre estimated life. Lack of bearing awareness can lead to premature bearing failures, unexpected machine breakdowns and loss of production. The basic knowledge about bearings can avoid these losses and bring in huge savings & benefits to the organisations. Roles of antifriction ball or roller bearings in machine tools and other engineering products are highly responsible in overall performance. The type, accuracy and size are the key feature in selection and unless otherwise not selected appropriately for the said application, the product would fail in meeting the performance requirements which is a set as objective. Knowledge on the types of bearings, accuracy of the bearings, pre loads of the bearings for engineering and capital goods application is very essential for designers and assembly engineers.
Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organising an online training on "Antifriction Bearings - Selection, Applications & Condition Monitoring Aspects".
