A company in the Food & Beverage industry was experiencing repeated bearing failures on a Pick & Place Unit Roller. Approximately 4 bearing sets were being changed annually due to the roller failing approximately every 3 months. A review by NSK showed the cause to be an ingress of water and process materials. NSK recommended replacing the standard bearings with NSK Molded-Oil units. A trial was implemented and since then commissioning failures have been significantly reduced. For approximately one year there had been no failures. The result was an improved productivity through reduced machine downtime.
