Process of Precision Ball Products
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 ranges.
After the raw material has passed inspection, it is then
fed through a high speed header. This forms very rough balls.
The flashing process cleans up the headed balls so that
they are somewhat smooth in appearance.
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 ball
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.
The ball is then precisely measured and inspected by
Quality Control to ensure the highest quality.
