Trust but Verify: the Value of Acceptance Testing

Trust but Verify: the Value of Acceptance Testing

Sponsored by Kaydon

Acceptance testing helps designers choose the right bearings for applications with narrow performance windows. Since the engineering data in bearing catalogs is typically derived from calculations and based on nominal dimensions, relying on it without verification can be a gamble in critical applications. A new white paper from Kaydon Bearings, an SKF Group company, explains when to use acceptance testing and how to develop an Acceptance Test Plan (ATP) to check key attributes, such as roundness, ring runout, face offset, and friction torque.
