Engineering Patents II: Case Study for a Ball Bearing Patent Application

COURSE NO: LE1-002
PDH CREDIT: 1
COURSE PROVIDER: Robert Tata, P.E.
Engineering Patents II: Case Study for a Ball Bearing Patent Application
Note: New York  Professional Engineers: This course does not qualify for PDH credit in  New York   State  only. For complete information, please visit the website of the NY State Licensing Board.
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents both patent applications and the important design and operating characteristics of two different types of anti-friction bearings. The patent application involves replacing conventionally used tapered roller bearings with angular contact ball bearings in a mechanical setting. It details important design features of both types of bearings, as well as how these features affect their installation and operation. "Prior art" (patents that are similar to the one being sought after) is discussed followed by conclusion drawn as to whether the patent application is to be allowed or denied.

 

This 1 PDH online course is intended for engineers (of all disciplines) who are interested in learning how to apply for patents and how to examine "prior art" for claims made in patent applications. It is also intended for engineers interested in gaining a general knowledge about anti-friction bearings.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the important design and operating characteristics of angular contact ball bearings
  • Understanding the important design and operating characteristics of tapered roller bearings
  • Learning how to analyze a mechanical system and develop innovative ideas for use in writing a patent application
  • Learning how to analyze "prior art" and compare to patent application claims to determine whether the patent should be allowed or denied
