Running with Motion & Control


Since our founding in 1916, NSK has strived to be at the forefront of uncovering and responding to society’s needs, offering new motion that no one has ever imagined. Today, NSK’s Motion & Control™ can be found almost anywhere in the world. From our homes to high-tech factories, from massive construction machines to tiny medical instruments.

Running with Motion & Control

NSK has been developing and manufacturing bearings, steering systems, and precision machine tool components, to create new motion in society since our establishment. In our “Running with Motion & Control” campaign, we made a motion tracing the footsteps of runners with that same spirit that drove our founders, imagining those who work hard to create a better tomorrow.

What is Motion & Control?

Following the blazing development speeds of technologies, the frontrunners take on incredible challenges such as developing autonomous driving, smart factories, and humanoid robots. These applications often go beyond the extent of pure digital software, requiring a hardware counterpart. Turning these dream projects to reality demands highly responsive physical components that can safely and accurately translate computer commands into real-world action - which is what Motion & Control is all about.

NSK’s Motion & Control products and technologies support the motion that brings comfort and convenience to your life: it’s in cars, planes, air conditioners, vacuums, medical equipment, wind turbines, satellites, and almost anything with moving parts.

About Bearings

One of NSK’s key products, bearings are used to reduce or control friction between moving parts. Bearings are essential components that protect machines from breaking down.
