4 April 2016The second half of 2014 and all of 2015 were marked by a two-time devaluation of the ruble in relation to other world currencies. This applies to both the dollar and euro, and what is perhaps even more importantly, in relation to the Chinese national currency - the yuan. Created on the market of products bearing the situation urgently requires further analysis and perhaps a change of producers and suppliers used in the production of bearings. Held in 2015, the analysis of new prices bearings gave a very interesting picture - the production of domestic refineries (with a full production cycle) increased in value by about 15 - 20% compared to pre-crisis period, imported products (China, Europe, America) - respectively devaluation our national currency - about 2 times (the process of price increase is sufficient inertia and fully at the time of this writing, has not yet been completed), products of mixed origin (assembly in Russia of Chinese parts enterprises with its own OTC) - 30 - 40% . These changes have led to extremely important consequences: A large proportion of known sizes of bearings significantly lower quality of Chinese production was worth almost as much, and sometimes even more expensive than the Russian, the service life is significantly longer. Departments supply large consumers, procuring bearings in recent years on the basis of the lowest price offers are obliged to carry out further research on the feasibility of such a policy in the future and pay attention to the products of Russian origin. As an illustration, lead is widely used in industrial plants ball 6-318. The estimated selling price of the products of Russian production by almost 50% lower than for analogs of Chinese origin. Equally impressive, and the difference in the proposals of the Tenth Bearing Plant (Rostov-on-Don) and suppliers of Chinese products on the roller group. And this despite the fact that our bearings much better reliability and durability. Import substitution for high quality bearings can and should start now. Production capacity and experience of our companies allows you to start output close in quality to the recognized global brand, whose head units foredeck in countries that have in the Russian Federation to the sanctions pressure: SKF (Sweden), FAG (Germany), KOYO (Japan), TIMKEN (USA ). Should be assortment expansion, both in the number of sizes, and accuracy class (for example, to start production of tapered and cylindrical roller bearings 4 accuracy class of strong alloys). Such products will be under similar operational characteristics to cost several times cheaper than imported counterparts. As for bearings imported the highest quality, then choose the best products of the Japanese (NTN, KOYO, ASAHI) producers - the currency of the country has taken a beating, that is, industrial production was worth a relatively "cheaper" at constant quality. Then follow the European FAG and SKF. The least profitable is the American brand (TIMKEN, ROLLWAY) because of the very high value of the dollar to all other currencies.
