Built on decades of knowhow, NSK bearings and bearing units use advanced technologies to support office equipment such as:
- copiers and printers
- banking and financial equipment
- cash registers and ATMs
- card readers, and more.
NSK’s unique technologies in areas such as materials, lubrication, and precision molding combine in a complete range of sophisticated bearings that meet environmental needs and save energy.
Office equipment requires high reliability, particularly in crucial banking and commercial facilities, and NSK bearings work behind the scenes to keep business running.
The greatest enemy of office equipment is electrostatic buildup. Some sealed bearings incorporate a grease containing conductive material as a countermeasure. However, the conductivity of the grease may degrade over time, so critical applications have used mechanical grounding by flat/plate springs or brushes.
Thanks to NSK’s in-house grease development, “ground-free” bearings for office equipment eliminate the need for mechanical grounding by greatly extending the grease’s conductive life. This not only extends operational life, but also helps offices simplify and downsize equipment.
