TOKYO -- June 12, 2013

By means of its own unique technology, THK Co., Ltd.
(THK)(TOKYO:6481)(http://www.thk.com/) 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
much more.

At this time, THK wishes to announce its participation as an exhibitor at
Assembly Technology 2013 (AST) to be held in Bangkok, Thailand, from 20 to 23
June this year. In 2007, THK established its sales subsidiary THK LM System
Pte. Ltd., which has continued to effectively strengthen its sales throughout
the Southeast Asian region. At AST, 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 stage operational demonstrations of the electric
actuators essential for factory automation.
