Final inspection of a precision ball

After the balls are removed from the lapping process the balls are inspected.  This is done mechanically and visually.  The balls are measured either through a fine tuned tapered roller or by a digital micrometer.  These devices are capable of measuring within millionths of an inch.  Once it is determined that the balls are within measured specifications, they are visually inspected through a high powered microscope.  Once they are approved by quality control, the balls are then packaged  and shipped to the customer.
