By positioning two linear motions orthogonally at 90-degree angles, freer movement can be achieved. This is an expanded application of linear motion. Free movement on a plane surface is used in various fields.

Seismic isolation technology for buildings
Quake-absorbing" technology to alleviate quake vibrations is a valuable countermeasure against earthquakes. When LM guides are combined orthogonally, they can move in a free motion on a plane surface. Combined with damping rubbers, this is the basis of THK's THK's unique quake-absorbing system. Through the know-how we have accumulated making LM guides, THK is creating new systems that can protect people's lives and property from natural disasters.
