Linear Motion Components
We offer a wide selection of linear motion components at Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd., most of which are manufactured by THK Linear Motion. With its creative ideas and unique technology, THK has grown into a worldwide pioneer in the development of these products, especially linear motion guide mechanisms. These guide devices have become indispensable components for mechanical and electronic systems in a broad range of industries in recent years.
Although THK has developed many unique kinds of mechanical components – including ball splines, ball screws, and link balls – THK’s main products remain their LM guides. These are linear motion components that are the first products in the world to incorporate linear rolling motion into practical use. LM guides provide high precision, high rigidity, and energy savings for high-speed machines; they also offer long service life through the use of the caged ball system, which prevents friction between balls.
Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd. supplies three different categories of THK linear motion components, as follows:
- Linear motion: caged ball linear guides and rails, spline nuts and linear bushings, precision linear packs, and cross roller tables;
- Feed screw and rotation: ball screws, screw and change nuts, cross roller rings, and cam and roller followers; and
- Actuators and mechatronics: This category includes linear guided and ball screws, and other products that offer high performance, low costs, efficiency, and maintenance-free operation.
THK offers online catalogues that customers can order and download for more information on these products.
THK is not the only manufacturer that offers industrial linear products through our company. Customers can get linear and rotary actuators by Oriental Motor, linear couplings by R+W, and manual linear clamps by Zimmer Group through us. With the unmatched breadth and diversity of products we supply and the variety of manufacturers with whom we partner, every client is sure to find the solution that he or she is seeking.
For more than 30 years, Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd. has served Canadian industry as a major distributor of factory-automation solutions. Please contact us to learn more about what products we have to offer.
