NSK Verify app upgraded to include industrial bearings
09 September 2020
The NSK Verify mobile app has been upgraded to include the company's range of general, giant and extra-giant bearings for industrial applications
When first launched, the NSK Verify bearing authentication app initially focused on the company's super precision bearings, which are designed for use in machine tools. Extending the free app to further product lines will bring more efficient operations and IT-based plant management to wider industry.
NSK Verify provides product authenticity information by reading the 2D barcode printed on each bearing box and checking it against the NSK database. Factors such as authenticity and traceability are vital in an era when fake bearings remain prevalent, despite a considerable amount of NSK resources being engaged in the identification and prosecution of counterfeiters.
