Within NSK's own plant in the UK, a grinding machine was experiencing raceway form errors. After numerous attempts to correct the error, the fault remains unidentified. Initial readings were taken by NSK Condition Monitoring Service prior to replacing the bearing and subsequent readings were taken within the following weeks. This helped to identify the root cause of the machine problem and saved time on unnecessary investigative maintenance and machine down time stripping down good components.
