ABMA hosted the Essential Concepts of Bearing Technology Course on September 18-20 at the IUPUI Conference Center in Indianapolis, IN. Over 50 young engineers attended the course and based on the feedback, the attendees found the lectures and group exercises to be very valuable as multiple topics discussed can be applied to their day-to-day assignments on the job.

"The Essentials Course was able to dive into all of the nitty-gritty bearing design details about stress, load, and film that will be used to better understand the bearing designs that we have along with helping to make good decisions for any new designs.” - Craig Hornsby, Rolls-Royce

The Essentials Course focuses on basic bearing manufacturing applications and theories, with a unique learning emphasis on real world application. Through group exercises and detailed lectures, young engineers were able to enhance their technical knowledge within the bearing industry.

In addition, ABMA introduced Vern Wedeven, a veteran of the Lube & Wear course held at Notre Dame. Wedeven brought a unique perspective to the course as he is an expert in failure modes and materials in bearing lubrication.


"The lecture which discussed the cause and identification of various bearing failures was very useful, especially for an OEM bearing analyst. The analytical discussions were also valuable, as they described the "inner workings" of my company's bearing analysis codes.”
