An international petrochemical products manufacturer wanted to increase the skill base of their engineering team, expanding their knowledge of rolling element bearings specific to the refinery. NSK was consulted and after a review of the plant designed a bespoke training course, tailored around product knowledge, lubrication, bearing application and failure analysis. The training was delivered in 3 sessions over 2 days to 20 engineers. The customer was very satisfied with the content of the course, its interactivity and the tutor.
