The NSKHPS series of high performance standard bearings from NSK has been expanded in line with demand for reduced maintenance costs and more compact industrial machinery. Deep groove ball bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, high precision angular contact ball bearings and ball screw support angular contact thrust ball bearings have all been added to this increasingly popular series. NSKHPS bearings are able to extend service life significantly, and increase the limiting speed by up to 20%.
In 2004 NSK introduced the first product in the NSKHPS series, a spherical roller bearing. The range was enhanced further in 2009, with the addition of angular contact ball bearings. With six types now available, circa 30,000 NSKHPS product variants are offered in total, giving machine builders an unprecedented choice for virtually any kind of modern machinery application.
In terms of service life, NSKHPS cylindrical roller bearings offer a 60% higher life span than conventional bearings at basic load ratings, while deep groove ball bearings, high precision angular contact ball bearings and ball screw support angular contact thrust ball bearings provide 15% longer life.
In combination with all the usual NSK benefits of high accuracy, universal matching, optimum surface finishing, temperature stability and low maintenance requirements, the NSKHPS range is now the first choice for machine builders keen to differentiate their innovations from the competition.
