Bearing Inspection - Our bearing inspection programs offer the customer the confidence and assurance that the bearing will excel in the application. Discover why so many Industries and companies trust Napoleon Engineering Services with their bearing inspection needs by clicking on the links to our comprehensive bearing inspection programs:
Custom Bearing Modification - At Napoleon Engineering Services we combine the manufacturing capabilities of a large bearing manufacturer with the service and precision of a specialty bearing shop. Capable of manufacturing a range of bearing types in a variety of sizes NES takes pride in the fundamental role and service we provide for the entire bearing industry. Our short lead times and skilled engineers make us an ideal source for whatever bearing need you have. We offer four primary custom bearing services all of which provide the client with the lead time and quality they deserve.
Bearing Testing - Napoleon Engineering Services' complete testing facility includes over 35 test rigs with more than 100 test locations. NES has the capability to custom design a test rig to your specific application as well as the resources to test any ball or roller bearing including four and five ball. Our testing program focuses on three main aspects of testing; life (dynamic), environmental, and impact/static testing. The test that is performed is determined by the failure mode of the bearing in the application. With testing being the final stage of product qualification process it is vital that it be completed with the precision and expertise only NES can offer. Contact us about designing and running a test rig for your bearing and mechanical components.
Source Qualification Inspection -Source Qualification Inspection (SQI) is a powerful program that allows the client to qualify new suppliers through a series of extensive inspections. The unbiased SQI program is used by companies, in a variety of industries to determine the design intentions, manufacturing capabilities, and quality of workmanship between different suppliers. With the amount of offshore bearings used in today's applications it is vital that OEM's ensure they obtain repeat success in their application, to reduce the risk of bearing failure.
FAA-PMA Re-Engineering Programs-One of the most comprehensive inspection programs offered at Napoleon Engineering Services (NES) is reverse engineering of Typed Certified aircraft bearings for FAA Certification. Companies that manufacture or sell bearings were not integrated into the aircraft at the time it was Type Certified must obtain their own PMA from the FAA. NES has been providing technical bearing support and manufacturing data through reverse engineering of Type Certified bearings for over a decade on hundreds of ball and roller bearings.

Ceramic Hybrid Bearings- Advancement in bearing design and performance is an objective that Napoleon Engineering Services (NES) constantly strives to achieve in all of the services we provide; Bearing Inspection, Bearing Testing and Custom Bearing Manufacturing. It is this fundamental goal and vision that motivates NES to manufacture the highest quality ceramic hybrid bearings; bearings that provide OEM's with a substantial increase in application effectiveness through a variety of characteristics. Our ceramic hybrid bearings excel in a number of applications and are ideal for wind turbine generators because of their many advantages.

Condition Analysis Reclamation (CAR) - Through Napoleon Engineering Services superior knowledge of bearing design and capabilities comes a program that provides customers with the highest quality recondition bearings. The Condition Analysis Reclamation (CAR), program which encompasses a four level process, can effectively increase the life of rerun bearings by 88 to 99 percent. To find out more about the CAR process please access the link below.
Bearing Failure Analysis and Metallurgical Testing-There are many causes of premature bearing failure; dirt, assembly issues, misalignment, corrosion all of which can be prevented with the proper measures. Because many are unaware of the specific reason a bearing fails in a given application, Napoleon Engineering Services (NES) introduced its state of the art failure analysis and metallurgical testing programs. These programs, pinpoint the causes of bearing failure by determining the material composition and microstructure of a bearing, as well as identify the wear characteristics that led to the failure.
