Resonant Inspection Perfect for Bearing Race Inspection

THE MODAL SHOP, INC.’s Resonant Inspection nondestructive test systems are ideal for 100% quality assurance testing for manufacturers or users of bearing races in a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, and consumer goods.  The NDT-RAMTM (Resonant Acoustic Method) systems have proven effective at major bearing manufacturers as an in-line quality inspection solution saving thousands of dollars in quality related costs such as sorting and recall expenses related to shipping bad parts.

In contrast to the common eddy current testing of bearing races, NDT-RAM tests the whole part, internally and externally, to identify structural flaws in bearing races that would cause a failure in use such as subsurface cracks or micro fractures.   The entire process can be achieved as fast as one second per part, allowing for efficient, production speed quality control testing of all parts that come off of your production line.

Free parts evaluations are offered for feasibility testing of your parts and system rentals are available allowing you to try the system in your factory before buying.  The system can be used to test parts with only a single day of training after the system is installed.

Significant trade-in credit is available for customers with aging or complicated competitive systems.  For free parts testing, specification sheets, application data, competitive product upgrades, pricing or to schedule a rental or demonstration, please contact THE MODAL SHOP, INC., 3149 E. Kemper Road Cincinnati, OH 45241-1516, Internet:, (800) 860-4867, Fax (513) 458-2172 or e-mail:
