Critical Analysis of High Precision Bearing with the Talysurf® PGI Bearings

The Form Talysurf® PGI Bearings has been engineered to handle crucial analysis of high precision bearings.

Bearings require excellent levels of quality, precision, durability and reliability so as to meet the challenging requirements of modern applications. Taylor Hobson products offer an in-depth understanding of bearing features such as radius, surface finish, form, contour, and dominant wavelength, providing essential feedback for enhancements in design and production.

Radius and form accuracy are the direct impacts from the patented gauge calibration routine and the blend of the instrument’s noise, straightness datum, repeatability, range to resolution and linearity. These specifications deliver a bearing measurement system that is top of the market.

Gothic Arch Analysis allows manufacturers to envisage how a bearing is going to function based on where the ball sits within the bearing race.

Morphological Filtering

Roughness can be measured using a diamond stylus, and mimic form measurement using a ball stylus - one measurement two results, thus saving time.
