Case Study: Band Cutter Linear Guides in a Dough Machine

Pain Point

A bakery was experiencing continual failures of their band cutter linear guides, which were not holding up to the required performance standards. The linear guides required replacement every 3 weeks, causing excessive maintenance, downtime and lost production.

NSK Case Study - Bread Factory
NSK Linear Guides

NSK NH/NS Series Linear Guides

Solution

NSK proposed high-speed stainless steel linear guides, with food-grade K1 lubrication units. Although the new linear guides were double the cost of the original Armoloy-coated units, the service life improved ten-fold, increasing output and decreasing downtime, with a total cost savings of $219,924.
