Major Exhibits

1. TCH Series Toughcarrier

TCH Series Toughcarrier

This pre-assembled, all-in-one linear actuator has two times higher load capacity and four times higher rigidity than the MCM Series. TCH Series is interchangeable with MCH Series products.

2. Sigma Σ Series Robotte Ball Screw

Sigma Σ Series Robotte Ball Screw

The Robotte combines ball screw and linear ball spline and achieves co-axial rotational and linear motion in a single product. The shaft is hollow, contributing to reduced weight, and the Robotte has 19% reduced inertia compared to conventional ball nut designs. This compact solution is used in water-jet cutting applications, SCARA robot arms, and Z-Theta motion applications.

3. High Performance Sealing and Lubrication Solutions

A) NSK K1™ lubrication unit

NSK K1™ lubrication unit

Incorporation of the NSK K1 lubrication unit ensures a constant supply of fresh lubricant. This self-lubrication contributes to longer maintenance-free performance.

B) High Performance Seal for Linear Guides and X1 Seal for Ball Screws

High Performance Seal for Linear Guides and X1 Seal for Ball Screws

Prevents entry of contaminants, while retaining lubricant for longer maintenance-free operation.

C) W Adapter for Linear Guides

W Adapter for Linear Guides

Provides added protection against debris commonly encountered in metal fabricating and metalworking applications.
