Quickly detect counterfeit bearings

Today, counterfeit bearings can result in high costs due to downtimes and necessary repairs. Thanks to the “Stop fake Bearings” initiative, however, you now have the opportunity to detect fake bearings within seconds using the WBA Authenticator App developed by oneIDentity+.

The World Bearing Association (WBA) was founded in 2006 and focuses on the fight against counterfeits. The founding members are the American Bearing Manufacturers Association (ABMA), the Japanese Bearing Industrial Association (JBIA) and the Federation of European Bearing Manufacturers Association (FEBMA).

Using the WBA Authenticator App you can now check the authenticity of rolling bearings from the leading global manufacturers JTEKT (Koyo), NACHI, NTN, NSK, Schaeffler (INA/FAG), SKF and Timken. Should the app raise doubts about the authenticity of a product, an immediate problem report can be submitted to the respective manufacturer. This not only protects your employees and machines, but also your good reputation.
