How good are Chinese bearings?

How good are Chinese bearings? Japanese all steal to use, Europe and the United States unanimously thumbs up

Japanese bearing steel company Toon Nakajima was recently exposed to a scandal. From 2016 to 2018, due to its own capacity shortage, the Japanese company ordered a large number of bearing steel balls from a bearing company in Luoyang, China, and sold them to European and American users after replacing them with its own packaging. Interestingly, after strict quality inspection by European and American enterprises, this batch of bearing steel was marked as "high quality" and put into subsequent production, which is enough to get a glimpse of the quality of Chinese bearing steel.

In recent years, with the continuous development of China's machinery manufacturing and metallurgical industry, many "famous enterprises" from overseas countries have formed stable cooperative relations with Chinese manufacturers. According to China's customs data, the current China and the traditional machinery manufacturing power between Germany has been "mutual machinery manufacturing industry cooperation first partner", China is the rapid development of manufacturing transformation, the Japanese steal to use, European and American countries like to use, this has become China's machinery manufacturing daily.

In Henan, there are not only the country's main grain and vegetable production bases, but also a series of machinery manufacturing enterprises such as Luoyang Special bearings and Weichuang Precision Technology. Bearing products produced by Luoyang Special Bearing Factory have been widely used in the production and manufacture of armored iron riders of the Republic of China, and even assembled in the sky fighter planes and spacecraft in space.

As a world-renowned "leader" in the bearing industry, Japan Chunnakajima disguised the bearing steel column "girder replacement" produced by Chinese enterprises as its own product, which also confirms the strong technical capability of Chinese bearing enterprises. In the future, European and American companies may not need to work with Japanese companies. Direct contact with Chinese companies can make their procurement costs lower.

Rome was not built in a day. The development achievements of Chinese bearing enterprises are not achieved overnight. In 2014, China's bearing output has reached 19.6 billion sets, the production scale ranks third in the world. At present, China has basically realized a full set of production system from the smallest 0.6mm bearing to the largest 11m diameter bearing, and the mechanical equipment supplied almost covers all the current industrial directions. In 2018, while Chun Nakajima was busy tricking customers in Europe and the United States, Chinese bearing companies have opened up the market of machinery manufacturing powerhouses such as Sweden and Germany, and the total bearing steel output rose to 965,000 tons. 

In addition to their diligence and wisdom, the development of China's bearing enterprises has played a leading role in accelerating the development of China's machinery, petroleum and automobile industries since 2011. The technical capacity of China's bearing enterprises has maintained a high-speed development trend all the year round after 2011.

 The comprehensive improvement of the bearing industry's technical capability is most directly reflected in the technical patent. Since 2011, the number of new patent applications in China's bearing industry has always maintained more than 150, and in 2018, the number once exceeded 200. After decades of accumulation and development, Harbin, Wafangdian and Luoyang and even Qingdao have become important bearing industry development bases in China. Bearing enterprises in Jiangsu and Zhejiang are also developing rapidly, and bearing enterprises in the north and south of China are forming their own regional characteristics.

 In Europe and the United States are expanding their influence in a large scale not only Chinese bearings, byd as a representative of China's manufacturing emerging forces of the development momentum is also rapid. American media in July - August has repeatedly reported BYD in North America's "science fiction factory" : the factory has basically achieved unmanned operation, in the field of new energy vehicles has formed a technological advantage over American enterprises. American journalists sighed: "All this should be happening in the factories of American companies, but it is China that makes science fiction come true."

 Ironically, the existence of BYD's North American factory briefly undermined the Biden administration's "supply-chain re-engineering program." The White House is trying to build a global industrial chain that excludes China, but they are surprised by the development of new energy technologies, and they can't get around the topic of partnering with Chinese companies. What's more, if Biden is determined to steer clear of Chinese companies, it will be hard for the United States to meet its commitments on global emissions cuts and new energy technologies by 2030 -- and how will Biden step down after campaigning as an environmentalist?

 To the surprise of Europe and the Us, a research report released by Georgetown University's Center for Security and Emerging Technologies in August pointed out that despite the US deliberately suppressing Chinese science and engineering students and scholars in the US, the number of Science and engineering doctoral graduates in China is still rapidly surpassing that of the US. By 2025, China will produce 77,000 science and engineering PHDS domestically, compared with a maximum of 40,000 from US universities. China has already made breakthroughs in some of the key core technologies that the US considers "next generation technology areas", such as molecular design, drug development, communications technology and computing science.

 Just like the outstanding performance of Chinese enterprises on the track of 5G and new energy, in the new generation technology environment, there are few countries that almost start at the same time to keep up with China's footsteps. The US media acknowledged that in the field of new energy technology and 5G technology, the US has opened a significant gap with China and Europe.
