Golden Flower Hotel, Bandung | April 26-30, 2010 | Rp.8.250.000,-


  • Give better understanding to the general description of friction that enables participants to optimize the useful or useless friction
  • Enhance fundamental knowledge of lubrication system to keep bearing operating condition safe and free from failure
  • Improve knowledge how to monitor engine operating conditions and lubricant selection to keep bearing operation longer
  • Give knowledge how to analyze the source of disturbance, and systematically analyze bearing failure


  • Better understanding of bearing and lubrication system and enable to modify lubrication supply system and construction to avoid repeating failures
  • The participants will be able to shorten trouble shooting or repair time after having strong technical knowledge in approaching the systematic root cause analysis of bearing and lubrication system
  • Capable and skillful to select types of bearing and lubricant fit to the operating condition


A comprehensive set of lecturer notes for after course reading and reference:

  • An extensive set of practical in-class “case study” exercises specifically developed to emphasize on the specification, maintenance, operation and troubleshooting.
