Customers benefit from NSK’s enhanced online engineering tools

A number of key improvements to the online engineering tools provided by NSK, a global leader in motion control solutions, serve to boost the work efficiency of customers. For instance, easy-to-use tools such as NSK Online Catalogue, Technical Calculations and 2D/3D CAD Data (all previously independent) are now linked. Design engineers can therefore select bearings, confirm specifications and download CAD data as part of a one-stop solution. In another improvement, a new function in Technical Calculations allows the one-time calculation and display of multiple factors that include bearing life, bearing fits/clearances and bearing frequencies, again helping NSK customers to reduce their work time.
