White Metal Bearing Support
3D LASER SCANNING
3D laser scanning solutions for reverse engineering of obsolete components and inspection. Using a FARO Platinum Arm fitted with an additional non-contact laser line probe, OEL engineers are able to digitally capture complex free-form components.
Using specialist bearing performance prediction software, our engineers can perform comprehensive evaluations of both new and existing bearing designs, allowing us to assist with bearing failure analysis and general troubleshooting.
BEARING PERFORMANCE PREDICTION
Using specialist bearing performance prediction software, Osborne Engineering can perform comprehensive evaluations of all types of hydrodynamically lubricated fluid film bearings, including fixed profile bearings and tilting pad assemblies, to determine how each bearing shall operate at various loads and speeds. These results are used on a daily basis throughout the design stages. This not only allows Osborne Engineering to analyse both new and existing designs, but also assists with bearing failure analysis and general troubleshooting.
FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS
During the design stages our engineers are able to use finite element analysis to accurately analyse the stresses and deformation of individual components to ensure trouble free bearing operation. If required Osborne Engineering can offer this service to assist and support customers during the design of rotating equipment, suggesting improvements and modifications.
