NSK Launches Solutions App
May 22, 2014—NSK has launched a Solutions App that works alongside the company‚¬Ä™s Added Value Programme AIP to improve efficiency, reduce breakdowns and improve profitability for industrial users. The NSK Solutions App guides users through a series of application scenarios to illustrate how substantial savings can be made by applying the right Solution in challenging industrial situations.
Effectively a window into the AIP program, the App is designed to help identify the root causes of problems and provide a guide to real world applications where savings have been made. A range of potential solutions can be explored that have been achieved by using the structured AIP approach in combination with NSK‚¬Ä™s high quality products.
Progress through the App begins by choosing industry sectors; they range from food & beverage to steel production, machine tools and quarrying & mining (more to come). Users can then decide to investigate solutions based around specific applications, or select the prevailing conditions that relate to their own production site. Within each sector there are a range of different application scenarios to choose from allowing users to match their own equipment or conditions with examples provided by the App.
Once a specific application has been selected the App then provides detailed Success Stories on different industrial applications, all featuring NSK bearings, linear or ball screw products. Each application describes the issue that has been solved and provides details of the product that solved the problem; it also provides a figure for the financial savings achieved. The savings take into account a combination of factors such as replacement costs, maintenance costs, consumables and downtime.
AIP is designed to deliver real benefits in operating costs, efficiency and profitability across all industry sectors. These benefits are achieved by delivering tangible savings to assets, such as equipment and machinery, and also by improving the working knowledge of maintenance and engineering personnel.
NSK has helped 100‚¬Ä™s of customers avoid major process pitfall‚¬Ä™s, achieve higher rates of productivity and save thousands of Euros every year and has developed the App to raise awareness of the savings that can be achieved by providing real-world practical solutions that users can relate directly to.
The NSK bearing solutions App is a free download available from iTunes for Apple devices and Google Play for Android and Windows based mobile devices, there is also a desktop PC version which is available to download from the NSK website below.
