V-belt & Sheave Training Course

This one day course is designed to assist the attendee in finding, fixing, and preventing problems with belt driven rotating machinery. It is an excellent course for engineering and maintenance managers, foremen, technicians, and trades personnel to give them a comprehensive information to select, install, and operate belt driven equipment for successful long term operation. Information from several failures on this type of machinery is presented to illustrate how problems get started, how they progress, why they occurred, and how they could have been prevented. Keep in mind that this is a hands-on course where the attendees will be doing v-belt and sheave alignment work on training demonstrators. Each student that attends the one day V-belt & Sheave Training course receives a copy of the course notes and a certificate of completion.
