Grinding of Stainless Steel Bearing Assembly

A company from the x-ray industry approached The Rayflex Company about the turning of a stainless steel bearing subassembly. The bearing assembly which is made of Kovar, stainless steel and 52100 steel has an outside diameter of .4375″ to 1.25″ and measured 3″ long. The bearing underwent turning, O.D. grinding, drilling, tapping, thread grinding and then finally it was assembled to a specific torque rating. A tightest tolerance of ±.0001″ was held throughout the production of the client’s 1,000 piece blanket order. After a 100% dimensional inspection, the bearings were shipped to the customer’s Nevada location.
