An international petrochemical products manufacturer wanted to expand the knowledge of their engineering team on rolling element bearings specific to the refinery. NSK was consulted and after a review of the plant designed customized training course, based on product knowledge, lubrication requirements, bearing application and failure analysis. The training was delivered in 3 sessions over a 2 day course given to 20 engineers. Training increased the engineers knowledge of bearing operations within their facility to offer increased performance and reliability.
|Before||Cost p.a.||NSK Solution||Cost p.a.|
|Customer used own methods for fitting and removal of bearings.||Three training sessions organized and completed - each session consisting of half day training.
Specialized training course created with full support material for 20 employees.
Total cost including travel and expenses for 2 days = $16,307
|Fitters spend an average of 1.75 hours per week changing bearings using their own methods of fiting and removal. Applied to 20 maintenance engineers at $21.40/hour||$39,010||After extensive training with NSK Experts, fitting and removal time was dramatically reduced to 1 hour / week. Applied to 20 maintenance engineers at $21.40/hour||$22,292|
