The course is suitable for engineers of any discipline and no previous detailed knowledge of bearings or CM is necessary. It is applicable to all those involved in monitoring rotating machinery, suppliers of bearings and other transmission components, service engineers, gearbox refurbishment specialists and specification and purchasing engineers.


The Seminar will cover:


  • Types and applications (ISO 15)
  • Selection & life calculation
  • Wear & failure modes (ISO 15243)

Condition Monitoring

  • Comparison and applicability of methods (Vibration; Acoustic Emission; Oil Debris Analysis)
  • Remote CM techniques
  • Case histories including bearing and gearbox damage in wind turbines and other applications
