Faulty installation of bearings is one of the most frequent root cause for premature failures. Therefore, we offer you an indivual training on our seminar truck at your location in Europe. You will lean to properly use tools like inductive heater or workshop press, to safely avoid damages and to adjust axial or radial clearance.

In particular, the following exercises will be conducted: 

- Changing the ball bearings of an electric motor

- Mounting cylindrical and spherical roller bearings

- Measuring and adjusting axial clearance of an assembly

- Measuring and adnusting of radial clearance of spherical roller bearings with conical bore

This seminar takes about 4 h and is dedicated to groups of up to four persons. Apart from that, we could refer in particular to your special applications. Please feel free to contact us directly for coordination of details according to your requirments!

IMG_9817-a.JPG

Elgeti Engineering is starting a collaboration with RWTH Aachen International Academy gGmbH on their Master's College for Mechanical Engineering for Bachelor senior students from the People's Republic of China. The purpose of this Master's College is the preparation of subsequent Master studies at RWTH Aachen. Therefore, the students attend intensive engineering lectures and German courses; they are involved in engineering practices and research and are closely tutored on scientific and cultural matters. In this context, internships at local companies and the option of writing their Bachelor thesis either at a German company or at a research institute of RWTH Aachen while being part of innovative research teams provide highly beneficial working experience. 

Professor Bernd Markert who is the director of  the Institute of General Mechanics at the RWTH Aachen University and a Professor of the corresponding host University in China are responsible for scientific management.

Publication: preventive maintenance of industrial gearboxes

Reliability of industrial gearboxes is highly important for efficient production in many applications. Frequently, machines are operated at demanding conditions twenty-four hours per day 7 seven days per week; hence, any expected breakdown will have enormous commercial impact – not only because of repair of the machine itself but especially because of production loss.

Analysis of lubricants, inspection with endoscopy and vibration measurement are powerful methods that help for early detection of possible damages and thus allow for properly planning and scheduling the required actions. This article describes how these methods work, their strong points and limitations and what needs to be considered for their proper application. Apart from that, recommendations on inspection frequency are given which are based on experience of Elgeti Engineering related to both inspection itself but also to failure analysis.
