Rolling bearing failures rotative: Identifying causes – optimizing operation - for technicians and fitters - Online

Training Objectives

Any machine component has a limited operating life. Rolling bearings are no exception. Depending on the operating conditions and the period of operation, different failures occur in rolling bearings.

First, the workshop covers fatigue failure and examines the causes, especially material fatigue. The connection between fatigue failure and the rating life theory provides the necessary theoretical background.

Wear damage brings a focus on lubrication. The relationships between lubrication intervals, lubrication methods and bearing failure give insights into how wear can be substantially prevented.

The theoretical part is rounded off by an overview of the various bearing failures as summarised in ISO 15243.
