Classroom Training

MTS06

Failure Analysis of Mechanical Power Transmission Components

Understand the causes of failures of power transmission components (shaft, gears and bearings) to better avoid them. Implement appropriate corrective actions using a structured failure analysis approach.

Objectives:

Upon completion of the training, the attendants will be able to carry out the following:

  • Identify the different aspects of the incriminated parts and the causes of the failures
  • Interpret the damage in areas affected by equipment failure
  • Implement the damage analysis and the appropriate corrective actions
  • To exchange with experts in the field

Date:

TBA

Time:

TBA

Pre-requisites

To have notions of metallurgy, mechanics and kinematics of the gears.

Pedagogical means:

Teaching method alternating theory and practice through case studies or works directed.

Who should attend:

Engineers, technicians and more generally anyone facing damage problems in gearboxes and gear sets.
