the Schaeffler Group's INA brand has stood for creative application solutions, great engineering and manufacturing expertise and a strong customer focus. Thinking outside the box, that is, taking new paths to develop ideas and think beyond barriers, is just as important now as it was when the company was first established. Dr. Georg Schaeffler, who founded the company with his brother Wilhelm in 1946, demonstrated what it means to think outside the box as early as 1949. At this point, his development of the needle roller and cage assembly - a pioneering innovation - helped the needle roller bearing achieve an industrial breakthrough. Georg Schaeffler’s inventive spirit and his will to succeed have become a permanent part of corporate culture in more than 35 plants worldwide.

IKO Nippon Thompson Co., Ltd. Tokyo Japan takes pride in its record as Japan's number one brand in high quality needle bearings, IKO needle roller bearings are high precision bearings with a low sectional height which install needle rollers as the rolling element, the following is the features which are not found in other bearings:
They have a low sectional height and can withstand large loads. They have a small rotation radius which provides a low rotation torque under equal frictional conditions, improving machinery efficiency. They are small and light, so they can keep inertia values to a minimum during operations.
