NSK's Molded-Oil technology is reported to have produced annual savings of more than €27,000 for a major food producer on the operation of the main make-up conveyor within a bakery.
The producer was experiencing failures every 6 weeks with approximately 36 bearings being replaced every year, which was causing considerable downtime and lost production.
Molded-Oil technology has been developed by NSK to greatly improve the performance of bearings in terms of reliability and to deliver maintenance-free operation. Molded-Oil bearings use an oil-impregnated polyolefin resin to provide lubrication to the bearing.
