Bowman develops new bearing test machine

Bowman develops new bearing test machine

Bowman International has developed a bespoke bearing test machine, providing an in-house facility that can determine bearing capabilities and provide fault analysis for plain bearings. 

The development of the advanced test machine means Bowman, which specialises in the manufacture and supply of bearings and sintered components including the Oilite and BowMet ranges, can test bearings on behalf of customers under their exact application conditions, with real time test data, remote computer operation and  bearing failure onset shutdown function.

Using the new facility, Bowman can test products with dry and lubricating running and accommodate a wide range of shaft diameters. Constant data acquisition of both the test bearing temperature and torque measurement are also invaluable features. 

The machine has been designed to run automatically and can sense the onset of bearing failure, which triggers an automatic stop procedure. This enables the failure mode to be analysed.
