NSK Americas Expands Service Offering: Acquisition of Alliance Bearing Repair

MC NSK Americas Expands Service Offering Acquisition of Alliance Bearing 1 400

March 2, 2022

 

NSK, a global leader in bearing and linear motion control technology, has recently expanded its bearing services capabilities in the Americas with the acquisition of Alliance Bearing Repair and Reclaim, LLC.

“With the Alliance acquisition, we’ve increased our service and support bandwidth to effectively manage bearing life cycle costs for our customers,” said Reid Jajko, Vice President, North American Technical Services, NSK Americas. “In this case, that includes utilizing reconditioning as a means to optimize viable service life from their bearing assets.” 

Alliance Bearing Repair was founded in 2005 in Alliance, Ohio, serving major industrial customers in the metals, pulp and paper, power generation and quarrying/mining industries. Reconditioning services include a wide array of restoration processes, repair and replacement of bearing components, as well as bearing modifications. “With NSK Reconditioning Services, our customers can expect the same adherence to process and quality assurance measures that is applied to the manufacture of original NSK bearings.”

By augmenting core technical expertise with diagnostic technologies, Condition Monitoring Systems and Reconditioning Service, NSK is acutely focused on bearing product life cycle management to deliver stable operation with reduced maintenance costs, and to contribute by available means to reducing the carbon footprint of our business.

“For many of our customers, a strong reconditioning program can play a vital role in managing inventory utilization, mitigating long lead times and ultimately reducing bearing replacement costs,” continued Jajko. “From the outset, our analysis is rigorous – not only of the bearing’s condition, but also the root cause of damage in the application. Our goal is to ensure successful operation of a reconditioned bearing, and to assist our customers with implementing corrective or preventative maintenance measures wherever possible.”

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
