Bearings are a globally sourced commodity. As such, quality control of regular deliveries as well as the evaluation of new suppliers is highly important.
Bearing trading companies who work independently from specific brands constantly need to optimise their supplier base, which means reducing costs without jeopardising the quality.
On the other hand, quality control is even more critical when selling bearings under the house brand however, customers need to be convinced that the alternative product will meet the requirements of their applications.
Elgeti Engineering have established a better understanding on bearing life testing and have recently published a report to educate distributors more on the subject.
