FEM, ANSYS, small dimension bearings, forces, deformation, scanning


The paper describes in which way an efficient and conclusive analysis procedure could be successfully applied for parts with functional role for small dimensional bearings. The main issue was to establish to what extent, applying the procedure for small functional parts scanning, could be used without measuring errors caused by deformation in case of contact principle. Considering the contact principle scanning may be due to the fact that metallic surfaces (in case of bearings) invoke high brightness in case on non contact scanning method, using LASER beam principle. The proposed solution proved to be reliable for such of small dimension components with functional role, to find which scanning principle would be more appropriate in terms of dimensional inspection.
