Workplace Drive Systems Overview Course Description: An introductory course in drive systems providing a study of system components including bearings, bushings, gears, belts, cams, chain drives, gaskets, seals, O-rings, motors and shafts. This course will include the function and names of each group of components. It will also cover how each component works, where will you see all of the components, how are the parts most likely to fail, and what senses you would use to detect problems with these components and sub systems. Objectives: Upon completion of this course, learners should be able to: 1. Explain what bearings, bushings, and gears are. 2. Explain what belts, cams, and chain drives are. 3. Explain what gaskets, seals and o-rings are. 4. Explain what motors and shafts are 5. Identify the main parts of a drive system. 6. Explain how a typical drive system operates. 7. Explain how a drive system most likely to break down. 8. Explain what senses you would use to detect problems in a drive system.
