Introduction

A French 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 gearbox components manufacturing. NSK was consulted to do an Application Review which resulted in designing a bespoke training course focussed towards the specific machinery and working practices on site. The training was delivered in 4 sessions over a 2-day period to more than 25 engineers. This proved to be very successful with good feedback.
