This course teaches both patent applications and the important design and operating characteristics of two different types of anti-friction bearings. The patent application involves replacing conventionally used tapered roller bearings with angular contact ball bearings in a mechanical setting. It details important design features of both types of bearings and how it affects their installation and operation. "Prior art" (patents that are similar to the one being sought after) is examined and a conclusion drawn as to whether the patent application is to be allowed or denied.

This course is designed for technical personnel of all disciplines. Besides gaining general anti-friction bearing knowledge, lessons can be learned on how to apply for patents and how to examine prior art for claims made in patent applications.
