NSK has launched a new mobile application primarily for machine tool precision bearings to support efficient operation and IT-based plant management. Customers are now able to scan the unique 2D barcode printed on each NSK bearing box after downloading this free NSK App.
Immediate access to digital inspection records for that specific bearing is possible now without opening the NSK bearing box. This app helps simplify bearing selection, improve the use history and traceability of the product, which contributes to factory automation and IT-based plant management.
This new app will provide information if the product is genuine or possibly counterfeit by reading the 2D barcode and then check it against the NSK database. The number of access to the 2D barcode for each bearing will be tracked and displayed, allowing customers to infer the product authenticity.
