Linear Motion Systems for Railways

Exceed Expectations, Motion For Innovation

Development of new business areas

THK continues to provide high-quality products, and is expanding its business domain from its core technology to various fields such as railways, aircraft and automobiles.

Development system

In addition to improving development speed to expand applications in the railway industry, we are promoting the development of railway products with an eye toward five and ten years down the road.

THK core technology

Using rolling motion to achieve linear motion reduces friction resistance, improves efficiency through smooth motion, and reduces the energy used by equipment.

THK’s various linear motion systems have high stability because they roll on a round groove that approximates the ball diameter, and can withstand loads approximately 13 times greater than conventional plane contact types.
