A bearing manufacturer reported failure of a product before the end of its expected lifespan.
Besides great expense, the consequences of this failure
required immediate damage analysis, along with swift and efﬁcient diagnosis of the problem.
2. THE SOLUTION: SCMbearing METALLURGY LAB
SCMbearing‘s in-house lab analysed the sample upon receipt. Within 48 hours, experts at
SCMbearing had found the cause of the damage,
and had advised on a series of immediate measures to be taken by the bearing manufacturer in the supply chain:
1. Optimisation of heat-treatment plant
2. Modiﬁcation of pre-deﬁned quality checks and inspection intervals
3. Creation of technical speciﬁcations for machines
Flawless bearing operation since SCMbearing's intervention.
