Matsui If our design can move in all directions, carry heavy loads, and has the power to climb slopes, it will have a wider range of uses. To achieve this, it is necessary to design a gear configuration that can generate enough power, but at the same time, at a very compact size to meet project requirements. Moving forward we will also continue to improve the design by applying NSK’s strengths in bearings and lubrication technology to improve efficiency and durability.
NSK has been manufacturing bearings for more than 100 years, and now the company is closely tied to cutting-edge fields such as collaborative robots and service robots. If you think about it, there are many things that could not be made without bearing and tribology technology, such as bullet trains, high-efficiency motors, and giant wind turbine generators, and working on this project reminded me that NSK is a company that has supported the development of society through essential technologies. As society is changing at an accelerated pace, I am very happy to be an engineer because I have so many opportunities to challenge myself and try new things. Pursuing a new field of business is complicated as there is no base model within the company, but this also makes the work very rewarding. Moving forward, we will continue to communicate closely with our customers and make every effort to be of service to society.
