To achieve “dental health”, NSK will develop innovative products in the fields of restorative dentistry, preventive dentistry, periodontics, implantology, oral surgery and mobile dental care using NSK’s “innovative grinding technology”, namely, high-speed rotary technology and ultrasound technology. All the aforementioned are complemented by our growing range of decontamination products. In each field, we will produce equipment that will allow dentists and dental hygienists to carry out treatment more quickly, efficiently and safely, equipment that will make it possible to provide new types of treatment and be less stressful for patients.
As a manufacturer which delivers to the world products which contribute to people's health, a clean environment surrounded by lush green nature is important to us.
In an environment blessed with the changing expressions shown by the flora and fauna throughout the four seasons, with have been creating high-quality products with our proprietary precision technology and state-of-the-art production facilities.
We believe that NSK's ultimate is to continually releasing useful new products to the world, with the pride of a manufacturer, into the future.
The new headquaters R&D center “RD1” which was completed in April 2017 is equipped to serve a headquaters function and a research and development function. In particular, to raise the level and speed of new product development we have created an environment to make it easier for development designers to work assisted by state of the art equipment. The center also has a hospitality area and a showroom to welcome both domestic and overseas visitors. There is also the “Center Court”, a 4-level atrium that can accommodate up to 600 people and deliver the highest inspiration to visitors. RD1 will be NSKʼs innovative hub.
The new factory “A1” which was completed in March 2018 is a cutting edge factory that serves as the nucleus of NSKʼs medium to long-term strategy. This is where integrated production of 90% of precision parts required for NSKʼs products is carried out. The factory is equipped with 600 sets of processing equipment spread over a floor area of 14,000 m² and operates 24 hours a day year round (with the exception of certain holidays). It allows for in-house prodution of all processes from cutting bar raw materials on a CNC lathe followed by the machining center, CNC grinding, heat treatment and surface treatment, ensuring stable and efficient production of high-quality precision parts.
The new "A1+" plant, completed in September 2022, is adjacent to the "A1" plant located in the Utsunomiya West Central Core Industrial Park. With a total floor area of 5,500 m² and approximately 100 units of processing equipment, the plant operates 24 hours a day (except for long vacations) as a precision parts factory. The entire roof is covered with 1,600 solar panels to increase production capacity and reduce environmental impact.
Today, we face a variety of issues, from an aging society to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions.
We not only aim to improve the dental health of people worldwide,
but we also strive to contribute to their overall health, happiness and the global environment.
“Fuller Life” and “Happier Planet.”
Working together with the common goals, we will be on our way to creating a better world.
This is NSK's promise for the future.
