Autowrappers chooses NSK for reliability

01 February 2007

Autowrappers has joined forces with NSK to design a beef burger-packaging machine for Unilever-Birds Eye Foods.

NSK supplied Molded Oil bearings for the machine and are claimed to cut maintenance intervals and extend bearing reliability.

Machines in the food industry have to endure frequent washdowns which tends to flush out the lubricant on bearings and can result in premature failure.
However, NSK’s Molded Oil is a plastic composite material containing abundant lubricating oil and permits a lubricating oil content of more than 50 percent by weight.

Simon Grant, aftermarket business development manager at NSK, said: The solution that we have provided to Unilever/Autowrappers clearly demonstrates the benefits of working with recognised bearing suppliers and authorised distributors.”

He continued: “The engineering support provided by NSK, together with access to the latest technological bearing products, is a package that is simply not available from smaller bearing manufacturers and independent distributors.

“In addition, by supplying an innovative bearing solution, NSK have provided a value-added service to the customer, solving his problem and helping to reduce the cost of ownership on what is a considerable machine investment.”
