Bearing supplier development is critical because cheap or inappropriate bearings can ruin even the best machine. But how do you ensure that you purchase quality parts?
Simply put, you must clearly communicate your needs and then verify that the product and manufacturer meet them.
The technical specifications define the necessary properties, documentation requirements and inspection methods.
Verification is done through testing and audits. Testing objectively demonstrates the product’s performance and results can further refine the specifications and guide the scope of a subsequent factory audit. The audit investigates the production methods, in-factory quality control and employee skill.
Defining technical specifications, testing and audits must be performed in coordination for the best results. Elgeti Engineering is happy to support you in all aspects of bearing supplier development, from drafting technical specifications and verifying designs through comprehensive testing and metallography services and factory audits.
