NSK Industries - Grinding Machine: A manufacturer of MDF boards was facing problems of premature bearing failures every 2-3 months on the work roll of the grinding machine. Shock loads and vibrations significantly impacted on the bearing overall performance.
NSK Industries - Belt washer: A trail with NSK ball bearings Molded-Oil was agreed, which resulted in an increase of bearing life from 3 months to over 12 months
NSK Industries - Band saw machine: A customer experienced failures in a silicon saw application. NSK proposed to replace the bearings with Deep Groove Ball Bearings using Molded-Oil lubrication.
NSK Industries - Ink Pad Roller: A magazine priniting company was using open Deep Groove Ball Bearings in an ink pad roller application. NSK recommended Deep Groove Ball Bearings with DDU seals, resulting in no bearing failures reported within a month.
NSK Industries - Conveyor: One potash processing plant had problems with chain conveyor's plummer blocks equipped with tapered roller bearings. The bearings failed several times per year due to tough operation conditions (production dust, high shaft temperature).
NSK Industries - Electric Motor: NSK performed an Application Review at a maintenance company. Due to the use of Sealed Super Precision Bearings bearing failures could be reduced and the bearing service life could be increased
NSK Industries - Table Guide for Woodworking Machines: a higher tolerance pulley bearing combined with a training package enabled fault-free running of the machine and reduced fitting times for the bearings
NSK Industries - Spindle of Grinding Machine: Within NSK's own precision plant, a grinding machine was experiencing raceway form errors. After numerous attempts to correct the form error, the fault remains unidentified.
NSK Industries - Horizontal Machining Centre: NSK Sealed Super Precision Angular Contact Bearings for increased productivity and reduced maintenance costs
NSK Industries - Machine Center: A worldwide manufacturer of automotive components was having significant unplanned downtime due to the failure of the Ball Screws in the Machining Center.
NSK Industries - Tyre Manufacturing: By introducing a higher specification NSK Ball Screw, life time was extended, increasing uptime and efficiency whilst reducing unplanned failures.
NSK Industries - Exhaust Ventilation Application: Spherical Roller Bearings and NSK training "Application of NSK Bearings" improve productivity
