NTN Corporation (hereafter, NTN) exhibits at the “15th Medical Device Development Expo [Tokyo]” to be held from June 19 to 21 in Tokyo Big Sight, Japan.

This event is one of 10 specialty exhibitions to be held at the “36th Manufacturing World,” one of the largest manufacturing exhibitions in Japan. The exhibitors introduce the medical devices and its components as well as development and manufacturing technologies. This time, approximately 2,100 companies will exhibit and more than 70,000 visitors are expected.

In NTN booth, we will introduce products that meet the needs for quietness and durability as well as compact and lightweight of components used in medical devices. The world-smallest hydrodynamic bearing “Hydrodynamic BEARPHITE” with an inner diameter of 0.6 mm, which we developed last year, realizes excellent quietness and high durability by creating a hydrodynamic pressure grooves on oil-impregnated sintered bearings and forming an oil film around the entire circumference of bearing clearance. Thus, this product greatly contributes to the improvement of quietness and long operating life of micro fan motors for small-sized mobile devices such as wearable devices. In addition, we will exhibit plastic sliding screws, that have been adopted in many types of transportation equipment in medical field, and the new product aluminum composite-type plastic sliding screw. The aluminum composite-type plastic sliding screws integrates aluminum and NTN's original compounded PPS plastic material. In addition to the features of plastic sliding screws such as quietness and greaseless, this product has excellent load capacity and durability and heat dissipation. We will also introduce a variety of products that contribute to the enhancement of functionality of medical devices.

We are looking forward to seeing you.
