The THK model type HCR is a circular motion LM guide of 4-way equal load type. This model ensures backlash-free, high accuracy circular motion. Since it allows efficient design where LM blocks are arranged at the load points, large circular motion can be easily achieved.
The HCR also gives freedom of design where multiple LM blocks can individually move on the same rail.
The HCR type also has a shortened assembly time allowing for clearance-free, highly accurate circular motion as opposed to sliding guides or cam followers. You can easily assemble this model simply by mounting the LM Rail and LM blocks with bolts.
This product type allows a circular motion of 5 m or greater and is capable of receiving loads in all directions.
The overwhelming success of THK’s Caged Technology has propelled the expansion of caged technology throughout the product line. THK is also expanding their product offering to include larger and smaller sizes as well as new materials and technology to achieve superior results in the most demanding applications.
