A Vibrating Screen manufacturer was experiencing difficulties with consistency of the bearing mounting in their shaker box assembly. At the same time they were looking for opportunities to save manufacturing cost and improve the overall performance of their machines. NSK engineers worked closely with this manufacturer and proposed that a complete bearing assembly be designed such that the resultant unit could simply be bolted down to the machine frame without complex assembly of bearings, seals and lubrication.
