Bearing Steels & Heat Treatment

As a special member promotion, the Bearing Steels & Heat Treatment webinar is free for all ABMA members. 

Thursday, September 17, 2015

1:00 - 2:00 PM ET

Presented by: Dr. Markus Dinkel, Materials Development with the Schaeffler

Moderated by: Greg Tinnell, Senior Vice President of Human Resources Americas, Schaeffler

Description: This webinar is designed to provide an overview of numerous issues related to materials from which bearings and their components are manufactured. This will include a general overview of the process of steelmaking and hot forming as well as a discussion of impurities which are common to all steels, and their influence on performance. The presenters will also go over the principal ways of adjusting the strength of the steel (such as hardening grades with martensitic and bainitic structure, as well as case hardened components). The webinar will conclude with a comparison of the effect of these variants on life of bearings in different service conditions.

 Participants completing this webinar will:

  • Know the regular processes for bearing steel production
  • Understand the differences in chemical composition through hardening and case carburizing bearing steels
  • Understand the critical importance of inclusion on bearing life
  • Understand the differences in martensitic, bainsitic and case carburizing heat treatments
  • Understand the effect of heat on the dimensional stability of bearings
