Course Description

Mechanical failures are the cause of ceasing a production and thus ought to be eliminated through the intervention of maintenance.  It is vital to correctly grasp the concept of failures.  Mechanical failure analysis introduces the causes of the failures, which need to be corrected for efficient production.  This course is also designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice of failure analysis. 

Course Objectives

  • Familiarizing with mechanical failure analysis
  • Learning failure modes and designing fail-safe systems
  • Understanding the service and maintenance requirements for machine failures

Who Should Attend?

  • Mechanical and electrical technicians 
  • Mechanical engineers
  • Service personnel and managers
