Leading innovation in Ball Spline technology, THK offers a novel linear motion system to the market, in which the ball bearings in the spline nut transmit torque while moving linearly on precision-ground raceways on the spline shaft.
The four major benefits of the Ball Splines include:
Some of the major applications for THK's Ball Splines include a shaft for die setting and similar applications requiring linear motion under a heavy load.
It can be used in loading systems and in similar applications requiring rotation to a given angle at a fixed position.
The Ball Splines can be incorporated into automatic gas-welding machine spindles and similar applications requiring a whirl-stop on one shaft, as well as in columns and in the arms of industrial robots.
