NEW DOUBLE-ROW TYPE RW ROLLER RING FROM THK DELIVERS INCREASED RIGIDITY IN A COMPACT BODY
The Type RW Double-Row Roller Ring from THK America features compact, yet highly rigid construction. The double-row roller structure at 45° and integrated inner and outer rings of the Type RW result in 20 to 30 percent higher rigidity than competitor models. The Type RW's use of small rollers reduces differential slip and therefore the torque required for rotation is small. Installing the Type RW 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. THK's Type RW is optimal for the rotary axis of high precision processing machines.
