NSK Americas launched NSKMetals.com, a website presenting the company’s diverse range of rolling bearing technology and service solutions expressly designed for extreme environments found in metal-making plants.
Paul Brda, Strategic Segment Manager, NSK, said: “Modern mill operators are under enormous pressure to increase production due to global demand, while simultaneously lowering cost-per-ton. Our intent with this website is to present game-changing products and technologies that help mills meet variable output targets while lowering overall operating costs.”
The website highlights the specialized bearing products NSK has engineered for virtually every mill application – from furnaces and casting, to rolling mills, to the array of critical process machinery and equipment that keep everything running smoothly. It also details the comprehensive technical support the company provides on-site with NSK industry experts, in the design stage with Application Engineering and perpetuity with extensive end-to-end services. An expanding library of technical resources providing a product- and service-literature downloads. And industry-specific case studies demonstrate how NSK has made real-world improvements in mill productivity and cost control with its holistic Added Value Program (AIP).
Brda added: “Our mantra is ‘Keep Metal Moving’. We know that if one bearing fails on a segmented roll in the casting facility, all downstream processes come to a halt, output ceases, and the costs quickly mount. NSK has been specializing in bearing solutions in mills for decades, introducing metallurgical and tribological advancements, and breakthrough bearing products that consistently outlast and outperform conventional solutions. Customers can find all that, and more, at NSKMetals.com”
