How a Precision Ball is Made

6. Final Inspection of 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.
