THK was the first company in the world to develop the linear motion system, which is based on an original concept and innovative technology. Today, linear motion systems have been adopted for a variety of industrial applications as machine components vital to the mechatronics sector. More than a century ago, bearings brought rolling technology to commercial rotary components, but the prevailing wisdom was that it would be difficult to do the same for linear components. The linear motion system developed in 1972 was the first product in the world to shatter that barrier. By utilizing rolling motion to produce linear motion in machinery, linear motion systems made it possible to design equipment that is high-precision, high-speed, labor-saving, and eco-friendly because of the improved efficiency. All of THK’s technologies infuse every type of mechanism with smoother and more accurate movement, driving innovation around the world. Guided by our corporate philosophy of providing innovative products to the world and generating new trends to contribute to the creation of an affluent society, we anticipate future trends and use our original technology and expertise to strive for new innovations.
THK is committed to developing its business through three growth strategies: expanding the geographical range of its operations through full-scale globalization, broadening the range of its product applications through the development of new business areas, and utilizing technology such as AI and robots as well as providing services that support the rapid adoption of the IoT in manufacturing through a change in business style.
