The Manufacturing Process of Precision Ball Products
- Raw Material
At its beginning stages, a ball starts in wire or
rod form. Quality control goes through a metallurgic testing
to ensure that the material composition is within acceptable
After the raw material has passed inspection, it
is then fed through a high speed header. This forms very rough
The flashing process cleans up the headed balls so
that they are somewhat smooth in appearance.
- Heat Treatment
An extremely high temperature process where the flashed
balls are placed in an industrial oven. This hardens the ball.
The ball is ground to the approximate diameter of the final
The lapping of the ball brings it to it's desired
final dimension. This is the final forming process and gets
the ball within grade tolerances.
- Final Inspection
The ball is then precisely measured and inspected
by Quality Control to ensure the highest quality.
