Low cost, high performance bearings roll into SA

A European supplier of high-quality, low-cost bearings for a range of industrial, agricultural, and automotive aftermarket applications is the latest international brand to be added to the product stable of Bearings International (BI).
“The supplier, Craft Bearings, gives end users the assurance of quality, tested bearings that are also more affordable,” BI business unit head, Ross Trevelyan comments.
BI offer marketing manager, Victor Strobel, reveals that the new range will be introduced in a phased approach. Ball bearing units, the largest-volume sellers, will be introduced initially, and tapered roller bearings, cylinder roller bearings, and deep groove roller bearings later on.
Craft Bearings is the only manufacturer at the lower end of the price market that boasts a laboratory where product batches are tested in accordance with an acceptable quality limit. “Our rigorous testing protocol encompasses visual and dimensional testing, as well as measuring longevity for particularly arduous applications,” Craft sales director, Virgilijus Lapènas concludes.
