Agriculture

In light of growing food insecurity in some parts of the world, agricultural machinery can play an important role in helping to efficiently achieve stable yields from crop production. Various types of agricultural implements are used depending on environmental conditions and manner of specific crop production in a given country or region.

Tractors are the primary machines used in crop production and handling work. By mounting implements to a tractor's drawbar or power take-off (PTO), fields can be cultivated, seeds can be planted, fertilizers and be spread, and agricultural chemicals can be applied.

Bearings are used throughout various components of the tractor such as the engine, transmission, wheel hubs, etc. under muddy working conditions and heavy load conditions.

Moreover, tractors and implements that are used in the vast fields of some farms in Europe and North America are huge, which place severe demands on the bearing. It is under such harsh working conditions that customers expect bearings to be highly reliable while offering superior cost performance. 

NSK applies various technologies to the manufacture of bearings to meet customer needs, including heat-treatment technology for higher reliability under muddy working conditions, material technology for greater endurance under heavy-load conditions, and optimum design technology for longer service life. In constantly striving to enhance various technologies, NSK is a significant force that supports agricultural worldwide.


 TM Series Long-Life Sealed-Clean Ball Bearings

Agricultural machinery bearings must offer a long service life while operating in harsh environments of mud, water, and heavy loads, while ensuring sufficient resistance against contamination from foreign debris. NSK offers various bearing products that meet these demands: the TM Bearing with a special seal, the Hi-TF Bearing that is manufactured with special material and heat-treatment technology, and EP Steel, which consists of an ultra-clean bearing steel that was developed and designed using NSK's proprietary technologies for material, tribology, and manufacturing. Through the application of these technologies, NSK is able to provide customers with bearings that offer unprecedented longer service life and are highly resistant to foreign matter. 
NSK will continue efforts to further meet customer needs with bearings and bearing products using cutting-edge technologies.

Agriculture, Tractor, Field

 

Tractors are the most versatile agricultural machines and represent a significant investment for farmers. Whatever the task, tractors are primarily drive units for hauling or powering machinery such as seed drills and reapers, round balers, ploughs, harrows and manure spreaders.

Agriculture, Hay Rake

 

Self-propelled large-scale reapers are the most commonly used haymaking machines. 
The cuttings are left out in the fields for several days before they are brought in, to dry in the air. To ensure they dry quickly, the cuttings are repeatedly turned by tedders and formed into windrows by rotary swathers. Once the cuttings are dry, balers are normally used to form the hay into round or square bales.
