Plain Bearings

Learners begin with an introduction to plain bearings. Individual lessons focus on topics like plain bearing selection, lubrication, maintenance, and troubleshooting. Learners will also practice skills, such as installing and adjusting a solid bearing using a hammer and mandrel, determining the shaft clearance for a given plain bearing application, and troubleshooting a plain bearing installation.

Ball Bearings

Learners will study the components and operation of ball bearings. Individual lessons focus on topics like ball bearing identification and mechanical and temperature mounting methods. Learners will also practice skills, such as handling and cleaning an antifriction bearing, installing a ball bearing on a shaft using an arbor press, and installing a ball bearing on a shaft using a bearing heater.

Roller Bearings

Learners using Amatrol’s advanced mechanical drives eLearning course will study basic principles of roller bearings. Individual lessons focus on topics like roller bearing identification, installation, and applications. Learners will also practice skills, such as identifying type and size of a tapered roller bearing given a sample, installing a roller bearing into a housing using a bearing press kit, and installing and aligning a fixed and floating tapered roller bearing system using an end plate retainer.

Antifriction Bearing Selection and Maintenance

Learners will study various aspects and components of antifriction bearing selection and maintenance. Individual lessons focus on topics like angular-contact bearings and bearing lubrication. Learners will also practice skills, such as mounting and removing an angular-contact bearing, selecting a tapered roller bearing for a given application, and troubleshooting an antifriction bearing installation.

Gaskets and Seals

Learners using Amatrol’s advanced mechanical drives eLearning course will study various aspects and components of gaskets and seals. Individual lessons focus on topics like o-ring seals, lip seals, mechanical seals, and seal maintenance. Learners will also practice skills, such as cutting a gasket to a specific shape, installing, removing, and inspecting a mechanical seal system, and troubleshooting a given seal installation.

Advanced Gear Drives

Learners will study various aspects and components of advanced gear drives. Individual lessons focus on topics like helical gear drives, right angle gear drives, and speed reducers. Learners will also practice skills, such as installing and aligning a parallel-shaft helical gear drive system, installing and aligning a right-angle bevel gear drive system, and calculating the output speed and torque of a worm gear speed reducer.

Gear Drive Selection and Maintenance

Learners using Amatrol’s advanced mechanical drives eLearning course will study various aspects and components of gear drive selection and maintenance. Individual lessons focus on topics like gear lubrication and gear drive troubleshooting. Learners will also practice skills, such as identifying the size and type of gear given a sample, selecting a method of gear lubrication for a given application, and troubleshooting a gear drive system.
