NSK Ltd. (NSK; Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and CEO: Toshihiro Uchiyama) today announced that it has developed Premium Lead Time ball screws in response to its customer's new development and maintenance needs. The new product lineup of ball screws is made-to-order for tailor-made designs, but it provides for a shorter lead time than conventional made-to-order ball screws.
NSK is targeting global sales of 300 million yen in 2018 for this new product line.
The demand for shorter lead times is ever increasing for ball screws for prototype evaluation machines, automobile-related devices, and maintenance components.
To meet these needs, NSK has created a new line of ball screws called Premium Lead Time that shorten the lead time over conventional made-to-order ball screws.
