Expected service life of the selected model number can be
calculated right away on THK Technical Support Site.
This enables to calculate at closer conditions of your machines. Easily calculate a product’s expected service life by selecting a tool and entering its conditions.
FEATURED THK PRODUCTS
Linear Motion (LM) Guides
THK was the first company in the world to develop the Linear Motion (LM) Guide, which is based on an original concept and innovative technology. THK also develops, produces, and supplies to the world a range of other vital machine components, including ball screws and electric actuators, as well as automotive and transportation components, such as L&S (Linkage and Suspension) products. Because of the smoother, more accurate movement they provide to every type of mechanism, all of THK’s technologies have gathered attention and are driving innovation around the world.
Feed Screws & Ball Screws
Ball screws are machine components that function by causing a large number of balls to circulate between a screw shaft and a nut. This mechanism efficiently converts rotary motion into linear motion. With the Caged Ball Screw, THK has incorporated caged ball technology into its existing ball screw designs, thus helping to achieve longer life with reduced noise and provide an extended period of maintenance-free operation.As a result, these products are now essential elements in machine tools, industrial robots, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, and other industrial equipment. THK also offers ball screws that are designed to support high loads, making them ideally suited for replacing the hydraulic cylinders used in equipment such as injection molding machines, presses, and die casting machine
Cross Roller Rings
Cross roller rings are roller bearings that feature internal cylindrical rollers arranged orthogonally so as to facilitate load bearing in every direction. The incorporation of the spacer cages between rollers prevents roller skew and friction between the rollers. Possessing high rigidity while maintaining a compact structure, cross roller rings are used in the rotating parts of many different types of industrial machinery, including the joint areas and rotating parts of industrial robots, as well as machining center swivel tables. Other applications include rotating parts of medical equipment and semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
