The benefits of the Renishaw Equator gauging system.

Manufacturers of bearing races use high-speed CNC turning centers, with production involving several operations to create a bearing race for final bearing assembly.

Typically a combination of various forms of gauging are used alongside the machine to monitor bearing race quality and allow engineers to correct the process.

However, producers are now looking to reduce regular costly maintenance and high capital investment and to improve production cycle times. This case brief examines a typical bearing race process with actual benefits that have been experienced by manufacturers using the Renishaw Equator gauging system.
