NSK Welcomes Visitors to JIMTOF 2022

NSK technology meets cutting-edge machine tools

  • NSK is working with machine tool manufacturers to realize a carbon neutral world through advanced NSK technology.

NSK Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and CEO: Akitoshi Ichii) will exhibit its products and technologies at the 31st Japan International Machine Tool Fair (JIMTOF 2022), to be held at Tokyo Big Site November 8-13, 2022.

As JIMTOF kicks off, NSK will also publish a major update to NSK VIRTUAL EXPO - an online exhibition of leading machine tools products.

Machine tools are the backbone of industry, serving as essential infrastructure to make components for other machines. NSK is proud to be the only company to research and manufacture precision bearings, balls screws, linear guides, and spindles, the four core components of machine tools.

In recent years, the industry has been demanding more advanced machine tools that save energy, use higher durability parts, are more automated, and have higher accuracy. NSK will be exhibiting a selection of advanced products that for the needs of today and the near future.

MORE THAN PRECISION - New Motion Creating A New World


MORE THAN PRECISION - New Motion Creating A New World

NSK steadily purses new challenges and goals to help advance machining — and by extension society — to the next level. We move forward without fail. Reducing CO2 emissions throughout the supply chain. Reviewing production processes, researching and developing new materials, and improving manufacturing technologies.

By delivering higher performance machine tool products to our customers, we help reduce environmental impact not only in our own facilities, but also at our customers' worksites. We believe this will lead to a better environment, industry, and more prosperous society.

New motion and ideas will change the world. NSK represents the continuous pursuit of further improvement and challenge.

Major Exhibits

Ball Screws for Next-Generation High-Accuracy Machine Tools
  • Reduced motion errors help improve machine tool productivity through higher quality surface finish.
  • Eliminates or reduces time needed for burnishing/polishing.
  • Reduced friction fluctuation when the ball screw reverses direction of motion, thereby improving motion accuracy and reducing quadrant glitch motion errors.
  • Contributes to energy savings of machine tools by improving machined surface quality and reducing drive torque.

Ball Screws for Next-Generation High-Accuracy Machine Tools
  • The new J-Type line supports heavy-duty cutting and high-speed rotation in a single product for efficient machining of general and automotive parts, as well as a longer service life and reduced CO2 emissions in manufacturing.
  • Contributes to improved productivity and long-term stable operation of machine tools.
