Four core technologies

Driven by Innovation

Thanks to a strong focus on Four Core Technologies; tribology, material engineering, numerical simulation and mechatronics, NSK has established a solid base platform for product design for our rolling bearings, automotive components and precision parts. By integrating these advanced technologies, we are strengthening our capabilities to develop the next-generation of products, enabling us to respond quickly and effectively to customer needs.

Technical Insight

With the help of our Engineers we have created technical articles on bearing performance, features, materials, lubricants, applications, components, and more.

The articles outline problem areas, highlight new developments and talk about everyday considerations for bearing selections.  >>

Four Core Technologies

Tribology (Friction Control Technology)

Proper lubrication is vital to bearings that have to withstand linear and rotational loads. Improved grease formulations and bearing surface processing methods have optimized severe operating conditions resulting in superior performance for applications requiring low friction, high-speed rotation, quiet operation, or enhanced durability.


Numerical Simulation

In the past,reliability in product development was achieved with experience in design and long testing periods. NSK's simulation technology allows for virtual validation which accelerates design and production. Extreme conditions and innovative designs can also be tested and analyzed far greater than in the past.

Material Engineering

Material engineering is continually being developed in order to enhance the performance and durability of rolling bearings. Our research focuses mainly on the areas of material design, special heat treatments, performance evaluation and analytical evaluation. The results of our research help improve our products.


Mechatronics is a combination of mechanics and electronics. Key advances in high-performance motors, control technology, highly precise sensing technology and biomedical microelectromechanical systems have become possible because of it.
