NKE held two customised Bearing College sessions in the UK, tailor-made for an NKE partner Anstee & Ware and an OEM customer UK Coal Mining. These sessions took place in Avonmouth and Doncaster respectively.
The focus of the Bearing College session for Anstee & Ware was handling, mounting and dismounting of bearings. Nine engineers attended the training.
The Bearing College session for UK Coal Mining was organised in conjunction with NKE distributor Howcroft Industrial Supplies. Altogether 19 senior engineers from ten UK Coal Mining sites were present. The focus was bearing applications in coal mining industry.
Again, all participants highly appreciated the in-depth bearing knowledge of the NKE engineering team. “I have been working with bearings for more than 20 years, but I still learned something new today!” said a senior engineer at UK Coal Mining said after attending the training. NKE’s thorough know-how in bearings has also won UK Coal Mining’s approval as a supplier “with full acceptance”.
Besides customised training programmes, NKE also organises regular Bearing College sessions at its headquarters and in other countries.
