Summary

Participants of this bearings, lubrication and shaft alignment seminar learn to create specifications to purchase, install, maintain and repair bearing based systems

Workshop Description/Agenda

If your machinery is misaligned by only a few thousandths of an inch, your plant energy bill may be significantly higher than necessary. Proper alignment and lubrication of rotating machinery can not only help cut your energy costs, but it can also increase the “in-production” time of your equipment, lower your maintenance costs and increase bearing life. Participants of this bearings, lubrication and shaft alignment seminar learn to create specifications to purchase, install, maintain and repair bearing based systems. In the shaft alignment seminar, learn how to align any type of machinery which will result in a significant reduction in both operating and energy costs. Gain the skill set to extend the life of rotating equipment
