Power Trans. Bearings and Lubrication

This course is designed to prepare the student to disassemble, service and recommission the components in power transmission applications. These applications include belts and pulleys, chains and sprockets, shafts, speed reducers, gears, brakes, clutch mechanisms, harmonic drives, couplings, cams and followers, keys, splines, bushings, bearings and seals. Students will be introduced to the types, properties and application of lubricants. Students will perform associated trade calculations and interpret engineering and component drawings, ISO charts, and bearing catalogues to ensure that work performed conforms to specifications. Millwright technicians are required to perform various tasks related to removal, maintenance and the installation of power transmitting components. They must follow safety guidelines, manufacturers? specifications and company procedures. They must understand the workings of assembly components and be able to communicate effectively with manufacturers, engineers and skilled trades workers.
