THK Has a Hand in Space Exploration with Development of Robotic Hand
Schaumburg, IL - THK's advanced technology has recently been applied to the area of space exploration. For use in experimental missions in outer space, THK has developed a robotic hand with small ball-screw actuators. This robotic hand is designed to safely assist astronauts in their work, as well as to enable work without the presence of an astronaut. This July, THK's robotic hand traveled...Read More »
Ball Screw carries heavy loads up to 92 m/min.
Type SBKH features re-circulation structure, where balls are picked up in tangential direction and lead-angle direction by end caps, that accommodates high-speed operation at- DN value of 130,000.- THK Caged Technology lends to smooth motion and minimized noise, while motorized drive facilitates maintenance and promotes energy conservation, machine control, and positioning accuracy. Available...Read More »
Caged Ball LM Guides delivers low-waving, rigid performance.
Available in 5 models with LM rail widths from 30–60 mm, Type SPR and Type SPS LM Guides feature 8 rows of raceways, small diameter balls, and extended length blocks. Ball deformation is minimized,- which promotes rigidity, while number of balls reduces amplitude of rolling element. Also included, THK Caged Technology eliminates need for frequent lubrication and fosters long-term,...Read More »
LM Guide features lightweight design.
Designed with cold drawn hollow rail and aluminum block, Light LM Guide enables high-speed operation. Unit includes hardened steel raceways and THK Caged Technology, which employs synthetic resin cage with patented curvature that cradles each ball and separates it from next one. Spaces between rolling elements retain grease and act as lubrication system for long-term, maintenance-free operation.Read More »
Linear Guide Ball Bushings are optimized for smooth motion.
LG bushings employ rotation prevention function, where 4 rows of circular arc grooves are arranged on shaft, to ensure precision movement. Product is dimensionally interchangeable with linear bushing, as outer tube has same OD. Since outer tube and shaft are interchangeable, combination of outer tube and shaft may be selected. Tube OD ranges from 8-15 mm, with tolerances from 0 to -0.011, while...Read More »
Compact Ball Screw is optimized for high speeds.
SBK Ball Screw employs THK Caged Technology, which promotes smooth operation as well as long-term, maintenance-free operation while also preventing collision noise between balls. Recirculation structure, where balls are picked up in tangential direction, and lead-angle direction by end caps makes this product suited for high-speed operation at DN value of 130,000. Models are available with screw...Read More »
Miniature LM Guide utilizes caged ball technology.
Available in heights from 6-6.5 mm, block widths from 12-17 mm, and block lengths from 14.2-19.4 mm, Model SRS5M/WM employs synthetic resin cage with curvature that cradles each ball and separates it from next one. Spaces between rolling elements retain grease and act as lubrication system. With low particle generation, guide is suitable for precision equipment applications, including medical,...Read More »
