A German company for maintenance and repair of electric equipment was experiencing a short service life of Standard bearings used in electric motors. NSK was asked to find a solution to this problem in order to increase the service life time. NSK performed an Application Review and bearing examination which showed that the bearings were being subjected to external contamination causing premature failure. NSK recommended the use of Sealed Super Precision Bearings. This had a significant Impact on a reduction in bearing failures and an increase in service life from 4 months to more than 12 months.
