Bearings are at the heart of industry
Bearings are at the heart of industry and, like many mass-produced components, they are continually subject to copying and counterfeiting.

All sizes of faked bearings are appearing, particularly on the spare parts market, in countries where known cases used to be few and far between. All manufacturers are affected.
