Taper Roller Inspection

Qualitas has developed an automated taper roller inspection machine, which inspects rollers at a high speed. Tapered roller bearings have tapered inner and outer ring raceways which are designed to accommodate combined (axial and radial) loads.

The manufacturing process involves various stages and thus it’s important to inspect the rollers for defects that can occur at every stage. Due to high volumes, manual inspection becomes a challenge, and the need for automation arises.
