    Gilbert Gilkes & Gordon Ltd Has Enhanced Its Bearing Knowledge With a Training Delivered by NSK

Comprising part-theory, part-practical content, the two half-day training sessions were tailored to the specific requirements of Gilkes, helping the company´s engineers improve their understanding of the latest motion technologies. Employing over 200 people at its Kendal headquarters, Gilkes has a history in engineering innovation that dates back more than 160 years.

Although the company´s hydro products and pumps are renowned in markets around the world, with an ethos of continuous improvement this forward-thinking business opted for a short training course on bearings following a routine meeting with NSK. Products manufactured by Gilkes use an array of NSK deep groove ball bearings, cylindrical roller bearings and double row angular contact bearings.

However, conscious of its shortfall in bearing knowledge, the company immediately took up NSK´s training offer. The two training sessions were delivered at the company´s Kendal facility to a total of 14 participants, a cross-section of senior design engineers, production engineers, maintenance engineers and apprentices. Importantly, the attendees were asked to come up with 10 questions about bearings that they wanted the course to answer.
