NSK believes that unplanned downtime is not an option — Keep your machinery running all year round!

Working closely with the mining, cement, and ready-mix concrete/aggregate industries, we continue to build on our experience and knowledge of industrial processes, applications, and problem areas. Through close partnerships with equipment manufacturers and end users, NSK engineers work tirelessly to understand requirements and offer reliable solutions. Our products are engineered to overcome unplanned downtime and the inherent problems of contamination and vibration.

NSK’s products, services, and solutions focus on reliability, quality, and reduced maintenance—critical factors to improving uptime and your bottom line. Thanks to extensive knowledge of harsh operating environments, NSK offers bearings uniquely matched to the needs of the cement industry.

Spherical Roller Bearing, Brass Cage, VS series

Reliability, sustainability, and productivity are key necessities across industries, and NSK’s knowhow and technologies help fulfil these needs. From standard high-capacity bearings to specialized bearings that showcase our latest advances, NSK provides the proper response to industry requirements. Our innovative products include:

NSKHPS™ spherical roller bearings: NSKHPS bearings utilize highly advanced materials, the latest cage design features, and special surface treatments. As a result, these bearings feature greatly increased bearing load capacity and extended life expectancy.


NSK Tough Steel, Hi-TF: Hi-TF bearings were developed with innovative materials and heat treatment technology for increased durability under harsh conditions. They combine long service life with good resistance to wear and seizure even under contaminated lubrication to achieve outstanding cost performance.

Plant reliability is key to achieving production targets. Contamination is ever present and wears away at the effectiveness of machinery, often creating unplanned downtime. Additionally, conditions such as water, heat, dust, vibration, or load can have huge impacts on performance. NSK solutions are designed to maximize uptime through increased reliability, less maintenance, and longer life.

Is contamination your biggest problem?

Plant reliability is key to achieving production targets.

Improve the life and performance of your machinery regardless of the conditions - wet, heat, dust, vibration or load.

Contamination is ever present and eventually it wears away at your machinery's effectiveness, often creating unplanned downtime - 80% of premature bearing failure is still the result of poor,or low, lubrication and high contamination levels. Through our four core technologies NSK drives innovation in material, lubrication, sealing and bearing design  - creating bearings which resist spalling, flaking, wear and seizure caused by damage contamination.

NSK partnerships provide you with tailored solutions to suit your purpose alongside industry experience and engineering knowledge which will continuously help improve efficiencies within your applications:
Kilns, Grinding Mills, Ball Mills, Pump & Gearboxes, Hydraulic Roll Press, Fans & Air Handling Units, Motors & Conveyors

What can help eliminate failures?

The primary failing point in conveyors is the bearings in the pulleys, followed by the bearings in the motor and gearbox, even though bearings are not always the root cause of the problem. Extending the life of the bearing is vital to extending the life of the conveyor belt. 

NSKHPS high performance spherical roller bearings were designed to do exactly this - reduce failure rates & give longer life.  
NSK TF - Tough Steel bearings were developed to reduce wear from contaminants extending the production run in arduous areas.
NSK Molded-Oil bearings help you over come your lubrication problems, reducing failures and the need for lubrication maintenance. 
NSK Long-life-VS spherical roller bearings offer high operational reliability with little maintenance requirements, designed to undergo the heaviest of stresses, vibration and misalignment.

With this selection of bearings your problems are minimised. NSK engineers can advise you on choosing the most suitable bearing for your machinery, applications, processes & conditions, ensuring you get the most out of your machinery.

How can you make a pump run forever?

Nothing lasts forever, but you could make them run for longer!
Most companies ignore their pumps until they fail, then the main concern is what is the quickest way to get them running again.  Pumps are vital components in the cement & related industry machinery and processes, therefore it is critical that they run efficiently and effectively. With proper maintenance and lubrication they could run for longer. 

The most common failure for centrifugal pumps (the most common industrial pump used in the world) are the seals, the lubricant and the bearings.  All three points are related, if the seals fail the bearing can fail, if there is not enough lubricant, the bearing can fail quickly afterwards.

By talking with NSK engineers you could benefit from longer life in your pumps - they can advise and help you respond to the problems on your site concerning machinery, sealing, fit, lubrication and maintenance issues & practises to ensure you get the most out of your bearings and therefore pumps.
