Regular audits and internal company standards

All corporate processes at Liebherr are focussed on quality, from the selection of raw materials and suppliers to the after-sales service. Each individual component of the large diameter bearing is subject to strict quality requirements. This is why we only work with select suppliers, who are audited on a regular basis. Internal company standards apply to certain raw materials like rolled steel rings. These standards contain requirements, which go beyond the common industry standards.

Sophisticated quality management

Liebherr bearings are characterised by their high quality and reliability. In order to guarantee and further improve our quality standard over the long term, we document all manufacturing and assembly processes in a production data acquisition system. This also serves as a central quality management system for production and assembly measurements, thus allowing comprehensive control, monitoring and tracking; deviations are quickly eliminated and processes are constantly optimised.

Ultramodern measurement methods

Liebherr not only makes regular use of traditional computer-aided measurement methods. The Liebherr Group also possesses numerous highly specialised measuring devices. In recent years, for example, the company has invested in a state-of-the-art crack detection system using high frequency magnetisation and a fully climate-controlled large diameter bearing measuring chamber. 3D measurements of large diameter bearings with a diameter up to 6,000 mm can be effected. This type of measurement is unique worldwide.
