LM Guide Pioneer THK Exhibits for the First Time at MTT in Jakarta,
International Metalworking Technology & Machine Tools Exhibition and
TOKYO -- May 12, 2013
By means of its own unique technology, THK Co., Ltd. (THK)
(http://www.thk.com/?bw20130509) (TOKYO:6481) developed the capacity for
rolling linear motion for machine parts—previously believed insurmountably
difficult—and upon launching the Linear Motion Guide (or LM Guide) in 1972
became the first company in the world to develop this as a commercial product.
Development of this rolling linear motion for machine parts has advanced the
precision, speed, and labor-saving capabilities of mechatronics equipment,
dramatically improving machine performance.
Attaching the LM Guide developed by THK to machine tools and industrial robots
enables ultra-precise work; for semiconductor manufacturing equipment too, it
achieves precision right down to the sub-micron level. In recent years, the
practical applications of this LM Guide technology have seemed limitless,
including LCD production lines, railway vehicles, welfare-purpose vehicles,
medical equipment, high-rise buildings and housing, amusement equipment, and
At this time, THK wishes to announce its first ever participation as an
exhibitor at the International Metalworking Technology & Machine Tools
Exhibition and Conference (MTT) to be held in Jakarta, Indonesia, from 22 to
25 May this year. In 2006, THK established its sales subsidiary THK LM System
Pte. Ltd., which has continued to effectively strengthen its sales throughout
the Southeast Asian region. At MTT, THK will exhibit its LM Guide flagship
product and ball screws as well as various machine components such as ball
bushings and cam followers used for all kinds of manufacturing equipment and
devices. THK will also exhibit operational demonstration units of the Electric
Actuators as essential parts for factory automation.
