The correct installation of bearings is paramount to the optimum running and ongoing care of industrial machinery. Here, the right training and use of the appropriate tools is particularly essential. With this in mind, NSK carried out a comprehensive training programme for the company’s maintenance staff, which included mounting and dismounting techniques, and advice on refilling bearing grease. Once the training was complete no further issues were reported, with bearing life duly extended from two weeks to six months, which in turn led to significant cost savings.
Super Precision Angular Contact Ball Bearings offer long-life thanks to their use of extra pure and advanced material patented by NSK. Furthermore, low-noise characteristics make them ideal for quiet-running, high-speed spindles found on many modern machine tools. A variety of cage and seal options are available.
