Steel plate rolling mill achieves €46k savings thanks to NSK bearings

Faced with high maintenance costs relating to bearings on a plate rolling mill, a major steel manufacturer has witnessed significant benefits following an application specific product replacement from NSK. Until recently, a daily maintenance routine was required on the rolling mill’s existing open roll bearings to ensure sufficient lubrication. However, analysis by NSK led to the proposal, and subsequent installation, of advanced Sealed-Clean bearings, which are designed specifically for use in heavily contaminated environments and offer 2.7 times longer life than conventional roll neck bearings.


Split cylindrical roller bearings boost steel plant operations

Designed specifically to suit steel industry converters and continuous casting lines, optimised cylindrical roller bearings from NSK deliver benefits that include the use of up to 30% wider cylindrical rollers for accommodating greater loads. The bearings also provide longer replacement intervals, helping end users reduce downtime.
