A large OEM manufacturer of quarry and mining equipment used NSK products within their machinery. The nature of the application is very high vibration used to separate out product on a shaker screen. The bearing condition is very difficult to ascertain, so often they run to fail. These failures can incur loss of production and replacement part costs. NSK provided CMS service to analyse the condition of the bearing using our multi channel analyser which was able to distinguish between the machine natural vibration frequencies and the bearing frequencies, thus enabling NSK to determine the bearing health without stopping the machine.
