A tyre manufacturer detected clearance inside bearings on his mixing machine. He was ready to stop the machine and dismount the bearings. After consultation with NSK, an AIP expert visited the site to perform a vibration analysis to judge the bearings condition. It showed that the bearings were in good condition and the identified clearance was inside the running tolerances. this permitted the customer to continue use of the selected bearings, avoiding production downtime and additional maintenance costs.
