Seismic isolation

Seismic isolation

To help prevent damage caused by earthquakes, THK has developed its own seismic isolation and damping system that is highly effective at suppressing vibrations. In Japan, where earthquakes occur frequently, seismic isolation measures are seen as increasingly important for safety and well-being. This is matched by an increased focus on highly reliable devices for seismic isolation in residential settings for protecting the lives of people and property, and-due to increased awareness of business continuity plans in recent years-sectional seismic isolation measures for protecting servers and other manufacturing equipment from vibrations. THK has developed its own seismic isolation and damping system to ensure safety and well-being in the event of an earthquake.

Renewable energy

Renewable energy

In recent years, global warming caused by emissions of greenhouse gases, such as CO2, has become a problem. Reports of fluctuations in climate conditions across the world, including instances of heavy rainfall, flooding, and droughts, are considered to be tied to global warming, and the need to utilize renewable energy as part of efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions has become a matter of some urgency. Renewable energy is energy that does not emit greenhouse gases, and it can be produced domestically with a low-carbon impact. This includes sources such as wind and solar power.
THK has developed the Model WLS Low-Torque Shaft Unit for Vertical-Axis Wind Turbines with the required strength, durability, and high safety standards to meet the IEC 61400-2 international safety standard and the JSWTA 0001 Japanese safety standard.
