The introduction of chrome steel and tungsten carbide in the production of miniature ball bearings offers lucrative opportunities for market players. The use of chrome steel helps in the production of high precision bearings that incorporate quieter properties, improved hardness and wear resistance into the miniature ball bearing. Additionally, the use of tungsten carbide provides durability and long life to miniature ball bearings. These innovations appear to offer new growth opportunities for suppliers in the years to come.


Usually, in factories or manufacturing units, the environment is noisy. Sometimes the noise levels exceed the allowable limits. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, permissible noise is limited to 80 decibels. Higher noise is not good for the health of workers. Reducing noise in equipment and machinery is essential. The high rotational speed of ball bearings is necessary to increase productivity. This is a major challenge and the development of efficient precision miniature ball bearings is the need.
