The implementation of NTN’s roadshow training program has proved to be successful, receiving favourable reviews on how easy the event is to organize and how effective it is for their employees. The tour carries the latest technology for ball and roller bearings, wheel hub assemblies, seals, and linear motion products through a mobile technical training and demonstration unit. NTN is bringing this roadshow to bearing users across Canada, with all seminars conducted live on-site at plant and manufacturing facilities. Based on the feedback received so far, plant and production facility employees new to bearings have been very enthusiastic to receive this training, whereas the more experienced employees, already familiar with bearing maintenance principles, have said that they are learning new solid concepts around preventative maintenance.

The NTN UBE technical bearing skills-based training program has been well received by the trainees and is now embedded as part of the NTN training program. Registrations for NTN's state-of-the-art bearing technical roadshow are now being accepted for 2023. Don't miss this unique opportunity to engage with NTN's industry experts and interact with their innovative solution-focused bearing portfolio.

NTN believes that by transferring and sharing knowhow, skills and experience through trainings, seminars and conferences, it benefits our business partners and NTN. A team of well-trained maintenance staff who understand the proper handling of bearings and mechanical components can help reduce costly downtime by helping companies prevent unforeseen failures of machines.

The Engineering team behind the NTN UBE Technical Training Roadshow is consistently updating the program as it rolls out to more participants, each with their own unique requirements and preferences. NTN is thankful to its Engineering team, led by Marcus Wickert, Director of Engineering. “NTN strives to go above and beyond to deliver premium engineering support and service,” says Paul Meo, President & CEO of NTN Canada. “Without the insight and knowledge of NTN’s Engineering department, this program would not have been possible.”
