Napoleon Engineering Services (NES) announces a custom test rig design and manufacturing service for OEMs to perform rigorous bearing testing in-house. NES custom bearing rigs test any ball or roller bearing and rolling element in the off-highway, industrial automation, aerospace, and automotive industries. Customers choose up to eight test platforms and control options in support of classical, sudden death, or maximum likelihood bearing test methodologies. Rigs can be constructed to test various parameters including bearing or lubrication efficiency, rolling contact fatigue, environmental conditions, or application reliability and can be designed with controls for constant operating parameters or with full automation for step-stress duty-cycle testing. Common monitoring and control features include bearing vibration, temperature, torque, rotational speed, applied load, lubricant flow rate, oil inlet temperature, and thermal operating conditions.
