A track record of revolutionary products created in response to customer needs
Our products are created in response to customer needs. For example, we have developed needle roller bearings designed to withstand the high RPMs and temperatures of motorcycle racing engines, as well as a line of high-rigidity, high-precision Linear Roller Way Super X products with four rows of cylindrical rollers. The latter include the world's smallest linear motion rolling guide. We continue to reach for even greater possibilities by, for example, developing products like our C-Lube, maintenance-free series, which is unique for its exceptionally low environmental burden.
