Anti-Friction Bearing Fundamentals
This online engineering PDH video presentation discusses the fundamentals of anti-friction bearings. This course describes the terminology, functions and design considerations of anti-friction bearings, and presents the different types of bearings used in various applications.
Bearings allow humans to move an object on, or within, another object. Their main purpose is to extract desired motion from a whole motion. Almost all machines operate with some form of rotating, sliding or oscillation motion, and where this occurs, bearings are used.
There are two main categories of bearings; plain and anti-friction. Both bearing designs have found widespread application throughout the engineering world, but no single bearing design can cater for all applications. What are anti-friction bearings? Why are there many different types? And why does every engineer need to know a little bit about them? This course will answer all of these questions.
This 2 PDH online video presentation is intended primarily for mechanical engineers, as well as other engineers interested in learning more about anti-friction bearings, their primary components and the different types of bearings used in engineering applications.
This continuing education video presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the history of anti-friction bearings
- Learning about bearing theory
- Learning about the main bearing components and functions
- Understanding the process of bearing lubrication and types of lubricants used
- Learning the common bearing terminologies
- Learning about roller and ball bearings
- Identifying the different bearing types and their suitable applications
