Within NSK's own precision plant, a grinding machine was experiencing raceway form errors. After numerous attempts to correct it, the fault remained unidentified. Initial readings were taken using NSK Condition Monitoring Service prior to replacing the bearing with additional readings taken the following weeks. Results showed a number of issues associated with the spindle lubrication. The root cause was identified which saved time and costs on unnecessary investigative maintenance and machine downtime.
