On April 18, SKF and Sinoma High-Tech Nitride Ceramics Co., Ltd (hereinafter referred to as “Sinoma High-Tech Nitride”) formally signed a letter of intent to cooperate at the SKF booth at the Shanghai Auto Show to jointly expand the prospects of quality, localization and scale application of ceramic balls.
Wang Hui, President of SKF China and Northeast Asia, and Zhang Weiru, Chairman of Sinoma High-Tech, led the leadership team of both parties to attend the signing ceremony. Through this in-depth cooperation, both parties will give full play to their respective advantages in silicon nitride materials, ceramic ball production and bearing applications to jointly develop and produce ceramic balls for applications including new energy vehicles and precision machine tools, providing the Chinese market with reliable quality hybrid ceramic ball bearing products and solutions.
SKF and Sinoma High-Tech Nitride reach in-depth cooperation
“With the booming development of China’s new energy vehicle industry, the market demand for related supporting components has also seen a surge in demand. In order to respond to customer demand in a timely manner and provide innovative products such as ceramic ball bearings in an efficient and high quality manner, SKF has carried out the localization of the entire value chain from technology development to production and manufacturing.”
Wang Hui, President of SKF China and Northeast Asia, said, “By joining hands with Sinoma High-Tech Nitride, we will take the local production of ceramic ball, an important component, as an opportunity to continue to optimize the end-to-end production chain layout and provide strong assistance to help the new energy vehicle industry accelerate forward.”

All along, Sinoma High-Tech Nitride and SKF have maintained a good foundation of cooperation. Since 2017, SKF’s powder plant in Sweden, Vesta Si, has been supplying high-quality silicon nitride powder to Sinoma High-Tech Nitride, and has continuously helped Sinoma High-Tech Nitride to improve its quality system, ceramic ball surface inspection capability and optimize the manufacturing process.
Last year, Sinoma High-Tech Nitride formally passed SKF’s ceramic ball inspection requirements and supplied ceramic balls to SKF, becoming the first ceramic ball supplier in China to be included in SKF’s supplier system, and the two sides achieved cooperation from raw material supply to quality product manufacturing.
Zhang Weiru, Chairman of Sinoma High-Tech, said: “Based on the concept of win-win cooperation, SKF and Sinoma High-Tech Nitride have achieved several milestones, providing high quality and reliable ceramic ball products for many manufacturers. Through this in-depth cooperation, we will fully upgrade our production capacity and work together with SKF to better serve our customers in China and around the world.”
