Rolling bearings are used throughout the machine construction and plant engineering sectors and are therefore subject to – and also help to shape – the “megatrends” taking place in these fields of application.
The “total cost of ownership” – not the purchase price – is the decisive factor Rolling bearing users are becoming increasingly aware that the purchase price of a bearing is by no means an accurate representation of the bearing’s actual costs. On the contrary, it is also necessary to take the rating life and the service outlay, as well as bearing failures, into account when making these calculations. For practical application, this means that users more often choose a higher-quality rolling bearing with a longer rating and operating life as well as longer maintenance cycles and a higher level of reliability. Machines that are equipped with durable rolling bearings offer competitive advantages in this regard.
