Incorrect specification, mounting and improper handling of bearings are the most common causes of premature bearing failure. So in addition to manufacturing high quality bearings for a wide range of applications, NSK offer training, tools and materials to help eliminate human error and increase bearing life.

As an experienced global manufacturer, NSK can provide unparalleled levels of expertise, passed on through training sessions, technical seminars and a comprehensive e-learning programme. The e-learning web-based tool is an ideal starting place for broadening basic bearing knowledge, from the simplest questions about bearings and their role in industry, to more complex topics covering applications and best practice. A number of technical tools have also been developed by NSK, to help customers select the correct bearing for their application.

The online Product Selection tool allows a customer to enter a bearing number or boundary dimension of a bearing type, to select the required product. The NAVI-FOCUS tool guides customers through a series of selection stages, making it easier to accurately select the most appropriate bearing for any particular application.

The latest addition to NSK's portfolio of support is a handy, pocket-sized guide, covering all aspects of rolling bearing maintenance. Running to over 80 pages, the free guide is spiral bound, to make it easier for engineers in the workshop or in the field to access and refer to individual sections. Designed to help bearing users overcome the damaging effects of incorrectly specified, mounted or handled bearings, the guide includes comprehensive data, common causes of failures, and countermeasures that can be employed to eliminate them.

Divided into easily assimilated sections, the guide also features charts and graphs to provide at-a-glance information on topics such as basic bearing types, ordering of replacement bearings (explained with an easy-to-understand flow chart), care and maintenance, the importance of proper fits, tolerances for housing bore diameters, and mounting and bearing lubrication.

What also helps to set the pocket guide apart is its Bearing Doctor section. This contains full-colour images and clear explanations of a wide variety of bearing failures, with a description of the symptom of the failure, its possible cause and measures to overcome it.

NSK also offer a wide range of training and technical seminars. These are tailored to meet individual needs and NSK initially works together with customers to agree both the duration and content of the sessions - ensuring that participants obtain the maximum benefit from their attendance. With extensive knowledge and experience of many key industry sectors, NSK are able to tailor their expertise to specific industry sectors, offering training courses which address the key issues affecting the sector, along with common requirements encountered as a result of the working environment, and including helpful advice on the best solutions available to common industry-related bearing problems.

Some of the industry-specific training courses available are:
• Electric Motors
• Food and Beverage
• Gearboxes
• Machine Tool
• Petrochemical
• Construction
• Rail
• Steel and Metals
