NSK presents technical work on bearing reconditioning


NSK will report on its research and investigations into the “Reconditioning of bearings from the standpoint of adding value” in connection with bearing use in continuous casting machines (CCM). Sign-ups for the session by NSK have already reached maximum capacity. However, NSK employees will also be available in the event sponsor area to field questions and inquiries, including about the cost-saving Asset Management Program (AIP), which aims to optimize the use of bearings in machines and equipment.
