Findling roller bearing training

Making good even better: Findling Wälzlager is constantly adapting its modular training program for roller bearing technology. For example, the content of introductory modules 1 and 2, which teach and go into depth about the basics of roller bearing technology, was modified. They now allow you to get even more added value because valuable tips based on theory and practice pave the way for a true competitive advantage. The subject training introduced within the past year, which covers various roller bearing product groups, was well received and continues to be offered. The complete training program for 2019 can now be found at

“Very good teaching,” “learned quite a few new things,” “very helpful” – those who participated in Findling’s roller bearing training are unanimous in their positive praise. It’s no wonder, since the content is personalized and continuously developed. “We recently modified and added to the content of our introductory modules 1 and 2,” explains Klaus Findling, Findling Wälzlager GmbH’s Managing Director. “Those who complete the training have a solid foundation of knowledge that they can continue to build on.”

Module 1 is the “foundation” for people without previous knowledge who come into contact with roller bearings on a daily basis at work or need to make general statements about them, such as buyers, technicians, junior designers or apprentices. Among other things, participants learn how to evaluate and differentiate between the performance parameters of different manufacturers, to correctly read and interpret catalogs, to understand application areas for different forms of rolling elements, to define prefixes and suffixes, and to specify a complete order reference.

The basics of rolling bearing technology are taught in greater depth in module 2. This is of interest, for example, to those who work in the areas of design, development, and project management and work with bearing and bearing assembly concepts. This training is about the selection and creation of bearing concepts; service life calculation in accordance with ISO 281:2010 and the appropriate use thereof; the evaluation of sealing technologies. operating and bearing clearance and their effects; and the application-oriented selection of fits, tolerance classes, and lubrication.

Module 4 also focuses on the damage analysis. Participants learn about the available possibilities for recording damage to roller bearings, what individual damage patterns look like, and what can be done to prevent or fix damage. “For design engineers, it is important to learn from the damage that is done and incorporate improvements into their products accordingly,” says Klaus Findling. “We give the participants the tools to incorporate the results into redesigns.”

Thanks to their modular design, Findling Wälzlager’s training courses are suitable for employees from various business areas and career levels. A common topic among the courses is the selection of a technically and economically optimum roller bearing. The theory behind rolling bearing technology is taken into consideration, but practical advice is also given. These tips and tricks for increasing competitiveness enable participants to truly add value to your company.

A new format was also added to the training program. Each of the one-day, subject-oriented training programs deals with specific product groups. Three different training courses are currently offered on needle-roller bearings, eXtreme series deep-groove ball bearings, housing bearings, spherical roller bearing units and plummer block. “The target audience is employees or users with previous knowledge who want more in-depth insight into a particular product group. This makes the training even more efficient for participants,” explains Klaus Findling. “The background: Someone who designs rotary encoders is not interested in spherical roller bearing solutions and a user in pump construction does not necessarily need to know what housing bearings are capable of.” These training courses are also manufacturer-independent, meaning that participants get a neutral overview of which solutions are available on the market in the respective product group.

By the way: The training can be carried out on site at the participants’ location. In this way, no time is lost and no travel costs are incurred. If necessary, Findling Wälzlager can tailor the training to the participant’s industry. Personalized coaching on the job is also possible.
