Reverse Engineering of Babbitt Bearings

Fusion Babbitting Co. takes great pride in assisting our clients with Reverse Engineering of critical components. Our inspection team and project managers possess a wide range of knowledge and capabilities. We will provide the customer with detailed drawings, via Solidworks, and finished new bearings or components that meet or exceed OEM specifications.

In many cases the bearing shell or other components may no longer be available from the original OEM supplier: whether you are in need of a spare or your bearing is damaged beyond repair, Fusion Babbitting’s expert staff has you covered.

Reverse Engineered Casting
Above: painted in red, is an example of a customer's bearing that was made from a casting. No patterns were available, so Fusion secured a forging to manufacture the customer's spare bearing.

Fusion's staff inspected the cast iron bearing shell and provided a new design solution to the client which replaced the existing cast iron with forged steel billet bearing shell. Using a forging rather than a casting enabled Fusion Babbitting to complete the project in weeks rather than months. This has provided the customer with a more robust bearing that has continued to stand up to the rigors of the application.
