New Double Type RU Roller Ring from THK Delivers Increased Rigidity in a Compact Body



Schaumburg, IL - (September 6, 2006) The Type RU Roller Ring from THK features compact, yet highly rigid construction. The double-row roller structure and integrated inner and outer rings of the Type RU result in 20 to 30 percent higher rigidity than competitor models.

The Type RU's use of small rollers reduces differential slip and therefore the torque required for rotation is small.

Installing the Type RU is easy due to the inclusion of mounting holes on the inner and outer rings. Housings and presser flanges are not required, and few assembly parts are needed.

Design configuration is flexible per customer specifications.
