Remarkable advancements in flat panel displays (FPDs), solar cells, smartphones, electric vehicles (EVs), self-driving vehicles, and generative AI continue to change our world—with the semiconductors driving them evolving to match.


Semiconductors are becoming even smaller and highly integrated, with 2 nm circuit line widths and 3D die-stacking further reducing power consumption and upping speeds in compact form factors. Meanwhile, FPDs are trending larger, with fabs for 10th generation substrates (2850 mm x 3050 mm) becoming mainstream as demand for 65+ inch panels continues to grow.


NSK strives to meet the needs of today’s manufacturers of semiconductors and FPDs with mechatronics solutions using bearings and linear motion products that offer high precision and speeds with low dust emissions, high resistance to heat and corrosion, low outgassing, and high rigidity.


NSK SPACEA™ series products contain Bearing, Ball screws and Linear guides for vacuum, clean, high temperature and corrosive environment using with NSK original core knowledge in Tribology, Material engineering and Analysis Technology to improve performance of Semiconductor and FPD manufacturing equipment, and support green environmental concern.


NSK is constantly adding to its product lineup with new products developed in response to the increasingly sophisticated needs of the market, and it is improving the coverage of the SPACE Series. This series makes full use of NSK's proprietary core technologies in such as areas as materials and lubrication. Since the release of the SPACEA Series, the company has continued to focus its energies on technical development, developing such products as:

  • titanium alloy bearings (a world first)
  • new highly corrosion resistant stainless steel bearings
  • clean lubricant V-DFO bearings, ball screws, and linear guides


Anticipating progress in, and changing needs for, products suited to special production environments, NSK is actively driving the evolution of the SPACEA Series.
