Supporting Society

With our products, we contribute to the improvement of infrastructure and more efficient expansion of industry.  

Using our unique technologies to help support and create new value in infrastructure areas such as information technology (IT), transportation, civil engineering and construction, and even in people's dietary lives and urban functions is part of THK's business.

Telecommunications infrastructure

Telecommunications infrastructure  can be considered the nerve system that controls modern society. Improving the reliability of optical fiber communications networks is a very important task. A combination of LM Guides , Ball Screws  and other THK products is used in optical fiber inspection machines to allow accurate inspection.

Shield machines (excavators)

In urban areas where space above ground is almost completely utilized, it is necessary to maintain the transportation network under ground. Shield machines (excavators)  take an active part in the boring of tunnels. Our LM Guides  are used in the robots that carry out concrete for the shield machine and install required tools accurately.
