The UTC/RAS bearing facility is approved by the AAR (Association of American Railroads) and is certified under the AAR M-1003 Quality Assurance Program. UTC/RAS goes above and beyond AAR guidelines and requirements by implementing a unique aspect to roller bearing quality assurance. UTC/RAS performs a 100% inspection on each roller bearing component part. Under the UTC/RAS Roller Bearing Quality Assurance Program, an additional lot audit inspection of 15% is completed. UTC/RAS also visually inspects an additional 5% of the original lot. Therefore UTC/RAS inspects roller bearings and their component parts with a 120% inspection. Along with AAR certification and approval, UTC/RAS maintains certified instruments and gages to ensure that each reconditioned roller bearing is of the highest quality.
