Aircraft bearing re-engineering programs in support of FAA Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA-FAA).
One of the more comprehensive inspection programs offered by NES is the reverse engineering of Typed Certified aircraft ball and roller bearings for PMA-FAA Certification. Bearing suppliers which were not integrated into an aircraft at the point of original design must obtain an independent PMA from the FAA.
PMA-FAA bearing reverse engineering is a method for ensuring that commercial aircraft replacement bearings can meet or exceed the same rigorous quality, design and performance standards as those originally specified. To support these requirements, a team of highly experienced NES engineers and technicians perform a thorough physical evaluation of aircraft bearings, using highly specialized equipment and data analysis tools. The end product is an accurate and detailed analysis which provides aircraft bearing suppliers with all of the necessary PMA-FAA certification inspection data, as well as added assurances that its aircraft bearing manufacturing meets or exceeds supplier standards for form, fit and function.
Our professionally trained bearing engineers and technicians will perform a thorough physical evaluation of OEM bearing products providing you with all necessary inspection data for FAA approval and product manufacturing that meets or exceeds OEM standards for form, fit and function. Our experience and sophisticated equipment allows us to provide you with accurate, detailed inspection data leading to your PMA approval.
