NSK renews the A-series Agri Disc hubs with the launch of the AS range

As part of an initiative to ensure that its products continue to meet the latest requirements of the agricultural industry, NSK is bringing to market a renewed range of A-series Agri Disc Hub bearing units. AS Series Disc will be available from stock to meet Europe-large demand for fast delivery.

Quality, performance and cost were the three main factors in NSK’s renewal of its AHU28117A series Agri Disc hubs. The new range, designated by the suffix AS, covers three popular sizes: AHU28117AS-01 (four holes), AHU28117AS-02 (five holes) and AHU28117AS-03 (six holes).

These new products offer a number of attributes that help improve performance in harsh agricultural applications, including: prevention of contamination through excellent sealing capability; maintenance-free performance with lifetime lubrication; a solid casing that facilitates high moment load and speed; easy installation with quick changeover for less downtime; and long bearing life.

Such features are ideal for a growing and evolving market like agriculture, where mechanical weed control is rapidly expanding in line with the desire to stop using glyphosate. There is also a growing demand for integrated solutions that provide strong sealing capabilities in tough applications such as tillage.

For more than 10 years, NSK has been producing Agri Disc hubs at its production plant in Neuweg in Munderkingen, Germany. This plant, with its very flexible production setup, will also manufacture the latest AS series, which features a newly optimized flange design, among other improvements.

A top quality approach, combined with the proven flexibility of NSK’s Munderkingen factory, means the agricultural sector can continue to enjoy the benefits of Agri Disc hubs – thanks to the new AS series – for equipment including cultivation units cover, tillers, front packers, seed drills, row cleaners, mowers and weeders.
