This edition of the series of programs explaining the technology used to produce items that are familiar in our daily life features ‘Steel Balls’. A bicycle wheel spins smoothly because the wheel axle contains ball bearings. The steel balls inside the ball bearing must be close to perfectly spherical. The program introduces the production method of high-precision steel balls with a margin of error of less than 0.1 micrometers.
A quick overview on the different types of bearings used in standard transmissions. Bearing design and bearing failures are discussed. My Books: http://amzn.to/2vnZPWc & http://amzn.to/2voHesW
