Exposition Summary

The International Mining Exhibition Exposibram is one of the largest mining trade fairs in Latin America. Exhibitors include major mining companies with global operations, as well as key suppliers of products and services for the sector. Innovations in technology, equipment, software, and new products related to the mining industry are released and presented at the event.

Asset Improvement Program

At Exposibram, NSK will feature its highly successful Asset Improvement Program (AIP) alongside a portfolio of products to meet the needs of the mining sector. Since its implementation in 2012, AIP has already helped companies save an estimated $35.9 million BRL (about $11.5 million USD). In the mining sector alone, this cost reduction was $140,000 BRL (about $45,000 USD) over 12 projects carried out with 10 companies in the segment.

AIP is a work methodology developed by NSK engineers that aims to optimize the use of bearings in machines and equipment. This optimization allows operation at maximum capacity with less wear, increases productivity, and considerably reduces operation and maintenance costs.

Based on four pillars: Mapping, Selection, Training, and Inspection, AIP is a tailor made solution from NSK. Through the program it is possible, for example, to demonstrate how much can be saved by using the proper bearing for each piece of equipment, and even to identify incorrect use or assembly of a bearing, which can reduce the life of a machine or even bring the whole factory to a halt.
