Product Announcement from THK America, Inc.
The Straight-Curved guide HMG is a new straight-curved guide that allows the same type of LM blocks to continuously move on straight and curved rails by combining the technologies of the LM Guide HSR and the R Guide HCR. It achieves a drastic cost reduction through improvement of work efficiency at the assembly and conveyance lines and the inspection equipment and simplification of the structure by eliminating a life and a table.
HMG offers a free design, shortened transportation time and cost reduction through a simplified mechanism.
This model also is capable of receiving loads in all four directions: radial, reverse-radial and lateral directions.
The overwhelming success of THK's Caged Technology has propelled the expansion of caged technology throughout the product line. THK is also expanding their product offering to include larger and smaller sizes as well as new materials and technology to achieve superior results in the most demanding applications.
