Examining Bearing Steel Microstructures - The Timken Company

Jan 21, 2022· For example, in the last decade, some wind turbine bearings have experienced premature damage due to white etching cracks (WECs) formation in the bearing races. WECs are a kind of damage mode in bearings, named due to their white appearance of cracks under an optical microscope. WECs often precede unexpected flaking and spalling of raceways.
