Improve Bearing Performance
Improve Bearing Performance and Qualify Sources of Supply with Napoleon
News Release from:
Napoleon Engineering Services
All companies strive to provide their customers with a reliable and efficient product that will perform to both their personal expectations and those of the customer. To continually produce a quality product that meets the high demands of today's consumers, manufacturers must have a thorough understanding of the functions the bearing executes in the application. Unfortunately, bearing manufacturers are not willing to share their design intentions. Drawings that provide the recipe to ensure repeatable application success, saving companies both time and money, have been withheld, until now. Napoleon Engineering Services (NES) extensive Source Qualification Inspection (SQI) program can provide the valuable insight and information, making your application more efficient and cost effective.
A unique industrial bearing reverse engineering program, SQI opens a door to provide an inside
look at manufactures’ design intentions. Through a series of thorough inspections, the highly skilled, meticulous engineers at NES provide a series of detailed reports to determine the quality of
workmanship and manufacturing capabilities of a given bearing. Through these invaluable inspections which include: complete dimensional inspection, visual inspection, noise testing, seal evaluation, material chemistry, microstructure, and hardness SQI can provide the ability to determine differences in performance between supplier’s products, giving understanding to why a baseline product is successful. By opening the lines of communication between the bearing manufacturers, SQI can lead
to enhancements of current technical drawings. With the uncertainty of today’s global supply chain, SQI provides stability by allowing control of bearing design.
SQI combined with our testing programs allow for a comprehensive understanding of bearing
performance and expectations within a given application, providing OEM’s the information needed to make informed decisions. With the array of uncertainties that may affect your application, let the largest independent Bearing Inspection and Bearing Testing facility in the United States provide the stability and peace of mind that only NES' experienced engineers can offer.
