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.
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.
We advance motorization by providing actuators and rolling products to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
We provide products optimized for passenger comfort during long rides.
We offer products that require less frequent maintenance and are customized for tilting trains and other specialized railway vehicles.
We provide high-quality products with proven success in the railway market.
The HSR is the world standard size for LM Guides, and it can bear loads from every direction equally.
The UGR is a comparatively lower-priced LM Guide that can be used in a variety of devices in homes, offices, and more.
The ATG is a guide with high misalignment tolerance and superior load resistance.
The FBL is a thin, compact slide rail that is easy to install.
The HCR is an LM Guide capable of arc motions that rotary bearings are not.
The TPG is a lightweight, highly rigid telescopic guide.
The PC is a compact press actuator with high thrust.
The Roller Type Guide is a guide with an automatic alignment function.
The MPG is a lightweight rotary bearing capable of stable motion.
