IKO was the first company in Japan to initiate technical developments on the Needle Roller Bearing. It is now a leading manufacturer with many remarkable achievements in this field. The Needle Roller Bearing, which encompasses a thin needle-shaped roller, has transformed the conventional image of a bearing employing round balls.
As compared with the ball bearing and other roller bearings, it is small in size and light, but yet has a great load capacity. Needle Roller Bearings help to make the overall equipment more compact, thus saving money and resources. They are used in a wide range of applications such as motorcycles, industrial machines, and office automation equipment where they have proven to be extremely reliable.
