A Vibrating Screen manufacturer was having difficulties with consistent mounting of bearing in their shaker box assembly. In addition, they were looking for opportunities to save manufacturing cost and improve the overall performance of their machines. NSK engineers proposed a complete bearing assembly be designed such that the resultant unit could simply be bolted down to the machine frame without complex assembly of bearings, seals and lubrication.
