An NSK cost-reduction programme has provided significant cost savings for a customer for its battered fish processing line as a result of replacing bearing inserts with the NSK Molded Oil bearings.

The AIP cost-reduction programme is a value-added service that helps bearing users to improve reliability, reduce operating costs and improve efficiency and profitability.

These objectives are achieved by delivering tangible savings to assets, such as equipment and machinery and by improving the working knowledge of maintenance and engineering personnel.

They suggested a solution using NSK’s Molded Oil Bearings to prolong bearing life.

Molded Oil bearings employ a solid lubricant to positively transform the performance of machinery in environments exposed to high humidity, corrosion and contamination.

The bearings offer more than twice the operating life of grease lubrication in water-contaminated environments.

The solid-lubricant technology also means that operating environments are kept free of grease and there is no need for refilling of lubricant, as Molded Oil provides a continuous supply of lubricating oil.

In addition to providing improved life, these bearings are also saving the customer the cost of regreasing of bearings.


NSK, a global leader in motion and control products, has developed and continuously upgrades four core technologies: tribology, material engineering, analysis technology and mechatronics, to provide the platform for the company’s innovative product developments. This technology platform provides the basis for the design of NSK’s rolling bearings, automotive components and precision parts. In addition, by integrating these advanced technologies, NSK is able to respond quickly and effectively to customer requirements across all key sectors.

NSK is a driver of new technology developments, with a full line-up of products spanning general industrial, automotive and precision parts industries. These include bearings for mechanical and electrical machinery, IT and aftermarket; innovative automotive products such as electric power steering (EPS) automatic transmission components, steering columns and other steering related products; and precision linear motion components such as linear guides, ballscrews, X-Y tables, mechatronic products and Megatorque motors.
