Full 3D profile of bearings
Automating the quality control of complex parts such as bearings can be a difficult task for manufacturers because traditional methods are either slow or only provide a partial profile because of shadowing effects. With their coaxial configuration and long working distance, Optocomb 3D scanners by XTIA circumvent such difficulties and scan the smallest features and defects of the bearing without any shadowing effect. By integrating the Optocomb 3D scanners in-line, manufacturers can also leverage the 500,000 points/sec scanning rate of our 3D scanners to perform the inspection of 100% of manufactured bearings without human intervention.

Dimensional inspection
XTIA's 3D scanners are supplemented by a comprehensive metrology software, the Optocomb Suite, that fully automates the quality control process from part measurement to data processing and quality assessment. With the Optocomb Ruler toolbox manufacturers can for example generate their own dimensional inspection recipe and automatically perform the GD&T analysis in parallel to the scanning of the bearing. They can thus easily leverage the high-resolution scanning data to assess tolerances (positional deviation, diameter, roudness, flatness and more), enhance their quality control system and optimize their manufacturing line.




Visual inspection
The presence of 3D microdefects can be highly detrimental to the smooth motion of a bearing. It is thus crucial to track and detect all defects that will affect the operation of the final bearing assembly, especially on the cylindrical surfaces of the bearing components. Helical Scan by XTIA is the ideal solution dive into the conrod structure and perform a visual inspection cylindrical walls. With Helical Scan, manufacturers can not only detect and identify 3D microdefects on such critical surfaces, but also quantify their size with a 2μm resolution. Manufacturers can leverage this quantitative information to fully engineer and optimize the fabrication process of their bearings.
