Every day we are surrounded by things that move in a linear fashion. At THK, our roots lie in our initial development of a Linear Motion (LM) Guide that can allow accurate motion along a straight line. This manufacturing know-how has allowed us to continually expand our range of linear guidance products we the extensive range we have today.

Our LM guides are used for guidance of large automatic glass doors in many new intelligent office buildings. Conventional plastic resin rollers could not be used because of the increased weight of such doors and the windblast. Our LM guides solved these problems. They also make the door mechanism more compact and allow more freedom in door design.
