THK hailed the success of its presence at Thailand’s mega event Manufacturing Expo where InterPlas Thailand is a concurrent exhibition. THK" stands for "Toughness," "High Quality" and "Know-how". It focuses on these three principles in the development of its technology and production processes.  


The Japanese-headquartered company was the first in the world to develop the linear motion (LM) system, which is based on an original concept and innovative technology. Today, linear motion systems have been adopted for a variety of industrial applications as machine components vital to the mechatronics sector. By utilizing rolling motion to produce linear motion in machinery, linear motion systems made it possible to design equipment that is high-precision, high-speed, labor-saving and eco-friendly because of the improved efficiency. All of THK’s technologies infuse every type of mechanism with smoother and more accurate movement.
