TraceParts publishes its annual design activity report for professionals in the bearings market

Every year over one million bearing CAD models are downloaded from the TraceParts platform. The TraceParts design activity report about bearings provides clients with detailed information on how the downloaded bearing CAD models are used in design applications. This report is available freely to the public

Saint-Romain, France; February 18, 2016 - TraceParts, a world-leading supplier of 3D digital content, has published a detailed statistical report for the second year running on professional designers who have downloaded bearings from the TraceParts CAD platform.


In 2015, engineers and designers from around the world have downloaded over one million CAD models of bearings from the TraceParts online library free of charge. Thanks to clearly defined technical specifications along with CAD models of millions of product families from hundreds of vendor catalogs, professional maintenance engineers and designers can look up, compare and select the certified parts that they need for their industrial projects.

This elevated flow of internet activity around bearings is the reason that several bearing vendors have implemented a 3D marketing strategy for their parts with TraceParts, thereby enabling designers on the lookout for ball bearings, roller bearings and countless other parts to validate and include such components directly into their design projects in a format that is compatible with their various CAD software.
By having their parts selected during the design phase, bearing vendors can closely follow the latest projects in progress, and provide both their existing and prospective customers with technical and sales support.

The "Design Activity report on bearings" reveals detailed data about the bearing CAD models downloaded according to product family, country and area of activity. It also gives players in the bearings market an important insight into the many projects launched in 2015. All information related to the downloads of the certified bearing CAD models, such as ball bearings, roller bearings, flange bearing units, pillow blocks, needle roller bearings and thrust bearings, is featured in this TraceParts annual report and is available for free at: traceparts.com/publish-your-3d-product-catalogs/product-ranges/bearings/.
