The end customer is a specialist in the field of glass recycling in Germany at multiple sites. The regular maintenance of the conveyor and sorting systems is carried out by the in-house workshop service team with conventional tools. After the inspection of the maintenance process, NSK recommended to train the service staff and to use the NSK mounting and dismounting 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.
