NSK has years of achievement in the development of bearings and bearing units to support leading edge technologies for office equipment such as:
The company makes excellent use of its proprietary technologies in such areas as materials, lubrication and precision molding to produce a complete range of products that meet:
In particular, high reliability is a crucial requirement for banking and financial equipment, and the NSK bearings used in such equipment work behind the scenes, making a strong and direct contribution to equipment reliability.
The greatest enemy of office equipment is electrostatic buildup. As a countermeasure, conductive bearings are used that incorporate conductive grease made from a mix of grease and conductive material. However, there is a concern that the conductive ability of the grease can degrade over time, so parts that need to be highly reliable also require a mechanical grounding function based on a flat plate spring or a brush.
NSK has launched a series of “ground-free” office equipment bearings by making use of special technologies that allow it to develop its greases in-house. In comparison with earlier products, these bearings offer a greatly extended conductive life. This development has not only extended the operational life of products, eliminating a mechanical grounding mechanism, it has also contributed to smaller, simpler devices.
NSK offers a full range of metric and inch size miniature ball bearings with bore diameters of less than 10mm.
Single row deep groove ball bearings are the most common type of rolling bearing and are used in a wide variety of applications.
