Visit of NSK Ltd, April 2014

The Centre hosted a two day visit at Cranfield from alumni Dr Satoru Arai of NSK Ltd, Japan in April 2014.

NSK is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of rolling bearings, automotive products, precision machinery and parts and mechatronics products.  Dr Arai undertook his PhD within precision engineering and was accompanied by his colleague Mr Takashi Yoshimura, who will be deployed from NSK later this year to undertake his research degree within the Precision Engineering Institute. Guests from NSK’s UK and German office were also present and were provided with an insight of the research work being undertaken within the Centre.
