NSK Ltd. (NSK; Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and CEO: Toshihiro Uchiyama) has developed new high-efficiency bearings for high-efficiency motor applications. The new bearings reduce energy loss to an unprecedented low level.
Industrial motors account for an estimated 40% of the world's electricity consumption. Accordingly, the new bearings are set to make a significant contribution to reducing industrial-and global-electricity consumption. NSK is targeting 4.5 billion yen in yearly sales of the bearings by 2025.
