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.

Taylor Hobson has been a part of the bearings industry for a long time. This association has helped to develop powerful software solutions to match many applications.
A utility that allows development of DXF data, enabling comparison of design profile to part profile.
- Tolerance zones
- Logarithmic equation
- Free form equations
Allows alignment of measured profiles to strategize data as well as automated dimensioning.
- Error deviation
- Tolerance zones
- X-offset calculation
Helix Angle Correction
Compensate for the helix angle allowing profile measurement in compliance with the component axis.
LS Arc Auto
Non-operator influenced analysis of spherical raceway by application of an automated routine. This simple algorithm will work irrespective of part position or size.
Roughness can be measured using a diamond stylus, and mimic form measurement using a ball stylus - one measurement two results, thus saving time.
