Advanced Rolling Bearing Analysis – for technicians

The seminar gives a comprehensive insight in modern rolling bearing analysis methods and tools for safe dimensioning, friction minimization, performance enhancement or downsizing and for noise minimization. Beside the theoretical fundamentals the application of the methods is shown with practical examples. Thus the participants get a deep understanding of differences and application limits of the different methods, are able to interpret calculation and simulation results correctly. In addition they learn to choose reasonable system boundaries for rolling bearing simulation and to understand the interaction between rolling bearings and the surrounding structure. Furthermore the seminar gives an insight in the modern possibilities of reliability prediction for economic operation and maintenance (Industry 4.0).
