Pioneer Of The LM Guide
- Sep 26, 2018 -

The moving parts of the machine can be divided into rolling parts, linear moving parts or a combination of the two. With the development of rolling bearings about 110 years ago, rolling contact became the standard way to achieve rolling motion, which led to a great technology. Revolution, rolling contact not only saves kinetic energy, but also keeps the frictional resistance to a minimum, thus greatly improving the performance of the machine. However, although the value of such development in the field of linear motion may be ten times higher than this, The technique of achieving linear motion through rolling contact can be considered to be late.
Through its own unique technical strength, THK solved the rolling contact linear motion problem that was once considered difficult to solve, and in 1972 became the first company in the world to develop and commercialize linear motion (LM) guide rails. Our linear motion system can quickly improve the accuracy and speed of advanced electromechanical instruments and save manpower. THK's LM Guides enable ultra-high precision operation of machine tools and industrial robots, and enables semiconductor manufacturing equipment to be used in Asia. Operating in micro-devices, the system has recently been used in liquid crystal production lines, railway passenger cars, disabled assisted vehicles, medical equipment, skyscrapers and residences, and recreational facilities. The use of LM Guides has exceeded all previous limitations.
