NSK continues to strengthen its position in the Independent Automotive Aftermarket by concluding a highly successful participation at the recent Automechanika Frankfurt exhibition.
Following the launch of ProKIT at Automechanika Frankfurt 2016, NSK has now extended its range of available references, showcasing these on a large display wall at this year’s edition of the trade fair. ProKIT single box solutions contain only 100% genuine bearings and high-quality components, making the replacement of wheel hub bearings faster, safer and more reliable.
A popular feature on the NSK booth was the Bearing Assembly Challenge, where visitors were set the fun task of assembling a selection of components into a finished ball bearing. Those who managed to complete the assembly correctly, got to take a bearing home in a gift format. There was a special prize for the fastest assembler (55 seconds), who received a Formula One ticket for a Grand Prix of his choice.
Elsewhere on the booth, NSK showcased its comprehensive training offer. On-demand training was combined with fitting videos that provided information about the correct mounting of hub bearings, as well as a number of tips and tricks to increase hub bearing knowledge.
NSK also demonstrated how to replace wheel hub bearings with tools from GEDORE, a leading specialist in tooling solutions for the automotive industry that had a dedicated presence on the booth. The demonstrations were intended to highlight how fast, safe and reliable the process becomes with these tools.
Garage requirements for additional tooling support have been recognised by NSK, so the company has now commenced the process of planning future activities. These activities will help garages specify tools that enable jobs to be completed quicker and more cost-effectively, while at the same time improving safety significantly.
