Oscillation is a movement similar to the joints of the human body. The various parts of the body are joined together with articulated joints that allow complex movements to be undertaken, These type of joints are also used between machine parts. THK products that can be used for oscillating movements include "Link Balls," "Rod Ends" and "spherical plain bearings". The Link Ball was one of our first products to be manufacture by THK using our particular technologies, and even today still gives a high performance product.

THK's link balls are used in the suspension stabilizers that are all important for the comfort and safety of road vehicles. By controlling and linking the movement of the left and right suspensions systems, they reduce roll and stabilise the vehicle.
