1. CHALLENGE

 

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

3.  RESULT

 

Flawless bearing operation since SCMbearing's intervention.
