Ann Arbor, MI, June 13, 2013 – NSK announced that it has expanded its High Performance Standard, NSKHPS bearing series lineup, for industrial machinery.
As the world continues to demand a smaller environmental footprint and greater energy and cost savings, industrial operations are trending toward higher efficiency by maximizing component performance. To achieve this, bearings need to last longer and run at faster speeds and lower torque.
To meet these challenges, NSK has expanded the NSKHPS bearing series, redefining the standard in bearing performance as it relates to load ratings, speed limits and bearing life.
NSK has successfully been producing NSKHPS spherical roller bearings and angular contact bearings for several years. To meet industry demands they will be adding four new bearing series to the NSKHPS lineup; deep groove ball bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, high precision angular contact ball bearings and ball screw support angular contact thrust ball bearings. The various series will cover over 30,000 bearings sizes.
