General Bearing Corporation's Engineering Technical Center (ETC) is located in Ningbo, China. The ETC was created as a support group for Manufacturing and Engineering Design validation. The lab is staffed with Technicians and Engineers who design the tests and set up and monitor the equipment.
The Test Lab within the Technical Center consists of special equipment designed to perform accelerated life testing of various types and sizes of bearings. Special environmental chambers simulating application conditions such as mud spray, high heat and other special function parameters have been developed and are in use in the lab.
The Metrology lab features a Zeiss CMM used to qualify production masters and gauging. Additional equipment to evaluate product cleanliness, metallurgical chemistry, consistency of lubricants and other properties is also available.
