An international steel manufacturer was experiencing regular malfunctions in the bearings in the casting machine constantly. In this machine used in the production of shaped sections, the bearings had to carry heavy loads and were changed in a short time.
The problem that arose was that standard bearings could not be used for a long time due to wear and fatigue. The average bearing life of the machine was 124 weeks and there were 3 failures.
After the inspection, it was recommended to carry out an endurance test with NSK's SWR series Spherical Roller Bearings.
The company has made a significant cost savings with the NSK solution made from the roller steel which has been developed and has much better wear and fatigue resistance.
BEARING's LIFE HAS BEEN EXTENDED BY 60 PERCENT
After an application evaluation with a bearing condition report, the bearing's life was extended by 60 percent with the recommendation of the SWR Spherical Roller Bearing.
The loss of production due to bearing failures and the labor costs for replacing bearings have been reset.
