A UK car manufacturer wanted to increase the skill base of their engineering team specifically in the repair and maintenance of machine tool spindles. This was a key requirement as the plant performed many machining operations in their engine and component manufacture. NSK was consulted and after a review of the plant designed a bespoke training course focussed towards the specific machinery and working practices on site. The training was delivered in 7 sessions over a 4 day period to more than 50 engineers. This proved to be very successful with good feedback. It also allowed an ongoing consultancy relationship with the NSK Experts who were on call to deal with specific problems encountered.
