Description

Learn about anti-friction bearing components, designs and applications. Ideal for all engineering industries.

Humans have been using anti-friction bearings (rolling contact bearings) for thousands of years. But what are anti-friction bearings? Why are there so many different types? And why does every engineer need to know a little bit about them? The answers to all of these questions are in this course!

In this course, you will learn:

  • History of anti-friction bearings.
  • Bearing theory (friction, loads etc.).
  • Bearing functions.
  • Bearing lubrication.
  • Bearing components.
  • Bearing terminology.
  • Ball and roller bearings.
  • Bearing types (thrust, angular, self-aligning etc.).
  • Which bearing is suitable for which application.
  • And a lot more!


The course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning anti-friction bearing knowledge. Even if you already have some background bearing knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher. 

Hope to see you on the course!
