NSK Industries - Grinding Machine: A manufacturer of MDF boards was facing problems of premature bearing failures every 2-3 months on the work roll of the grinding machine. Shock loads and vibrations significantly impacted on the bearing overall performance.
NSK Industries - Vacuum Pump: A major manufacturer of silicon wafers for microprocessors experienced a failure on their vacuum pumps which were equipped with NSK bearings. A proactive maintenance strategy needed to be integrated.
NSK Industries - Belt washer: A trail with NSK ball bearings Molded-Oil was agreed, which resulted in an increase of bearing life from 3 months to over 12 months
NSK Industries - Band saw machine: A customer experienced failures in a silicon saw application. NSK proposed to replace the bearings with Deep Groove Ball Bearings using Molded-Oil lubrication.
NSK Industries - Cotton Yarn Machine: A cotton yarn machine producer asked NSK for a bearing handling training in terms of proper lubrication. The customer experienced difficulties in lubricating the bearings due to the small gap between the rings and cage.
NSK Industries - Wood Milling Machine: A wood furniture producer faced frequent failures on their wood milling machines. The linear guides on the working tables were being damaged.
NSK Success Stories - Furnace Fan Motors: A textile manufacturing company had experienced repetitive failures at approximately 6 months in air circulation motor-fans used on their fabric furnace.
NSK Industries - Ink Pad Roller: A magazine priniting company was using open Deep Groove Ball Bearings in an ink pad roller application. NSK recommended Deep Groove Ball Bearings with DDU seals, resulting in no bearing failures reported within a month.
NSK Industries - Table Guide for Woodworking Machines: a higher tolerance pulley bearing combined with a training package enabled fault-free running of the machine and reduced fitting times for the bearings
NSK Industries - Conveyor: One potash processing plant had problems with chain conveyor's plummer blocks equipped with tapered roller bearings. The bearings failed several times per year due to tough operation conditions (production dust, high shaft temperature).
NSK Industries - Electric Motor: NSK performed an Application Review at a maintenance company. Due to the use of Sealed Super Precision Bearings bearing failures could be reduced and the bearing service life could be increased
NSK Industries - Centrifugal Pump for Water Treatment: A manufacturer of centrifugal machines for water treatment developed a new design of machine to answer the requirements on specific applications.
NSK Industries - Centrifugal Pump: A large energy producer (electricity + heats) faced frequently failures on their water recirculation centrifugal pumps. NSK jointly with the local distributor performed a bearing failure investigation on site.
NSK Success Story - Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industry - Stacker Line: Improved equipment reliability, 88% decrease in breakdowns
NSK Success Story - Machine Tools - Collet Closer: NSK recommended to use a pair of Super Precision Angular Contact Ball Bearings at the front and the back side of the spindle
NSK Industries - Workhead Dresser: 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.
NSK Industries - Centreless Grinding: Within an engineering manufacturing plant, a centreless grinding machine was experiencing shape errors. The engineers suspected that some of the bearings within the spindle arrangement were faulty.
NSK Industries - Spindle of Grinding Machine: Within NSK's own precision plant, a grinding machine was experiencing raceway form errors. After numerous attempts to correct the form error, the fault remains unidentified.
NSK Industries - Horizontal Machining Centre: NSK Sealed Super Precision Angular Contact Bearings for increased productivity and reduced maintenance costs
NSK Industries - Main Spindle Shaft: A machine tool manufacturer produced 25 main spindle shafts with the wrong tolerances. As the tolerances were not correct the customer was looking for standard bearings to match his requirements.
