By positioning two linear motions at 90-degree angles, free movement can be achieved in the two directions. This is an expanded use of single axis linear motion provising free movement on a plane surface taht can be used in various industries.

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