Salvage Engineer

Manage workers engaged in reworking rejected ball bearings.

What does a Salvage Engineer do?

Supervises and coordinates activities of workers engaged in reworking rejected ball bearings: Disassembles and inspects races, faceways, cups, cones, retainers, and bearings. Diagnoses imperfections, such as parts not within tolerance, scratches, burrs, rust, or dirt and determines if part can be reworked or should be rejected. Assigns bearings to assistants to be reworked, advises them on problems involving bearing salvage, and trains workers in principles and practices of salvaging rejects. Inspects reworked bearings and components, using special go-not-go gauges, calipers, and micrometers. May operate lathes to turn, bore, face, and polish raceways, and perform related operations to rework bearings.
