Protecting Life

Reliable technologies that are needed to protect people's lives in fields ranging from medical health to home security. 

There are many ways that THK can help to protect lives and property. Our products can work in the hospital like the eyes of doctor, the hand of the surgeon and feet of nurse. In the home to assist in simple tasks and even the very piece of mind for security devices. Developing these technologies for such needs is one of our goals.

CT scanners

THK's LM Guides are used in the body motion section of CT scanners  and X-ray machines that can penetrate patients' head or body to provide precise data to medical staff for making accurate diagnosis. In addition to their normal functions, our LM Guides  provide smooth, quiet operation that can help the patient feel more at ease during this ordeal.

Platform doors

In Japan and other countries, platform doors  are installed in many new rail transportation systems and subway stations. Major labour savings from automatic operation ( without platform staff ) are achieved by the use of these doors which also provide passenger safety. Even where space is limited, our LM Guides  can contribute to the smooth movement of passengers with reliable sliding door operation.

Quake-absorbing technology

To protect human life and property from earthquakes, buildings and houses have long been constructed using anti-quake designs. Now, however, the quake-absorbing technology of seismic isolators  can be used instead. Such devices reduce the motion of the earthquake rather than providing resistance against it. THK's seismic isolation LM Guides can be used in all types of buildings, from skyscrapers to single-family houses, and we will continue to develop even more effective and widely applicable technology of this kind.
