In steelmaking, bearings are deployed in a vast range of plant and equipment serving both upstream and downstream processes, from the storage yard for raw materials to actual rolling and refining operations. The working environment for these bearings is unique to steelmaking, predominantly due to factors such as particle contamination, water and heat. In addition, the bearings will likely have to cope with heavy or shock loads, vibration, extreme operational speeds, and rapid acceleration and deceleration.

NSK can offer a wide range of bearing solutions for the steelmaking sector, extending from standard to high-capacity units. At the steel mill training days in Turkey there was focus on the latest NUB series of bearings for continuous casting, as well as the new J-Line bearing units that are manufactured to the JIS standard and come in six popular housing types. Also showcased was the NSK Added Value Programme (AIP), where support is provided to make customer operations and maintenance processes more efficient and profitable.
