NSK Expands HPS Series to Respond to the Demands of Sustainability Era

Exponential population growth resulted from the Industrial Revolution that occurred more than 250 years ago.  At that time, coal was utilized to propel human progress; however, it wasn’t until the 20th century before it was realized that the fossil fuel era would be short-lived and other energy sources would need to be utilized, leading us to the sustainability era of today.


Resulting from this awareness, the demands for industrial machinery changed.  Machinery size decreased in order to achieve a smaller environmental footprint and increased power savings.  Therefore bearings needed to perform at faster speeds and lower torque, while maintaining longer service life.

To meet these demands, NSK leveraged its research & development, design, material and manufacturing technologies to introduce the NSKHPS Series Spherical Roller Bearing.  Since its development in 2004, NSK has expanded the HPS Series lineup to include these additional product categories:

  • Deep Groove Ball Bearings
  • Angular Contact Ball Bearings
  • Cylindrical Roller Bearings
  • High Precision Angular Contact Ball Bearings
  • Ball Screw Support Angular Contact Thrust Ball Bearings

Now a total of 30,000 product varieties are available to meet the needs of industrial machinery.  For more information on HPS Series, visit our website and download our catalog, NSKHPS High Performance Bearings for Industrial Machinery.
