The New Koyo Training Vehicle Features Mobile Training

Koyo LogoIn the bearing business, knowledge is important for customers, installers, maintenance pros and plant technicians.

There is a lot to know and the information is critical to proper installation, removal, lubrication, specifying and failure prevention and analysis. You have to know what you are doing to get bearings right.

So, Koyo has put wheels under their vast supply of knowledge. They call it the Koyo Training Vehicle or KTV. They have just introduced a vastly upgraded version.

The new KTV is built into a 40 foot Freightliner. The vehicle has slide-out sides, which open to create a classroom large enough to accommodate 25 students at once.

It replaces a 36 foot Winnebago motor home that held 12 students.

It is well equipped for audio visuals. Inside the classroom on wheels, there is a comfortable atmosphere, away from the noise of the shop floor or the distractions of the office or plant.

A major plus feature is the hands-on portion of the training program: an installation bench where students can perfect their skills at mounting and removing bearings.

The new Koyo Training Vehicle will make a guest appearance at IBT Tech X 500 2008, at Kansas Speedway, September 17 – 18. Their sessions will feature Bearing Failure Analysis. The training session presentation focuses on handling, maintenance, and installing. Koyo will also discuss failure from improper installation and lubrication failures and concerns. (You can preregister for this training when you sign up for Tech X 500.)
