    Thrust bearings bearing raceway

    Powerful software for critical measurement and analysis

    The data from analysing critical characteristics such as roundness, radius, form, roughness and harmonics is essential for reducing wear and noise and for improving functionality and quality.

    Roundness analysis

    Departure from true circle (DFTC) example: for identifying localised roundness errors

    Surface analysis

    Form, radius, roughness and waviness analysis from one measurement

    Most bearings standards ask for two measurements

    One of radius and form using a ball stylus and another of surface finish using a diamond stylus.

    Morphological filtering

    A ‘morphological filter’ allows the user to measure using a diamond stylus and then simulate measurement using a ball stylus. It can also be used with non-contact systems to simulate measurement with a stylus:

    • Measure roughness  then simulate form and radius measurement!
    • Improve roundness and form repeatability 
    • Standard on Talyrond®, Form Talysurf® and non-contact systems 
    • Internal and external measurements
