NSK has received the “ Japanese Society of Tribologists (JAST) *1 Technology Award ” for new technology improving the durability of bearings by strengthening the rolling elements (steel balls).
The award-winning rolling element reinforcement technology is already being used in bearings for automotive transmissions and machine tools, contributing to improved reliability in a wide range of machinery.
Moving forward, NSK will continue to draw on its world-class research and development capabilities to create a safe, comfortable, and environmentally friendly society, and support industrial development and the advancement of machinery.
*1: JAST was established in 1956 for the purpose of improving technologies relating to tribology (the science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion and of related subjects and practices). JAST website: http://www.tribology.jp/indexe.htm
