The regular maintenance of the conveyor and sorting systems is carried out by the in-house workshop service team with conventional tools.

After the training and the implementation of the NSK mounting tools the customer achieved time savings during mounting and a lower failure rate of the bearings due to correct storage. This resulted in longer bearing lifetime and lower maintenance costs.
