IKO Linear Solutions

Experts in Motion

With more than 60 years of experience, IKO Nippon Thompson specialises in quality needle bearings, linear motion rolling guides, precision positioning tables and machine components. IKO guides, bearings and tables are used in a wide range of applications including Semiconductor, Packaging, Medical, CNC machines and Automation.

Since becoming Japan’s first maker of needle roller bearings in 1959, IKO has established a world-class reputation as an innovative producer of high-quality, precision bearing products. Using their expertise and technology through years of experience producing needle roller bearings, they have developed a line of motion rolling guides units that combine carriages and track rails. Since the introduction of their first linear motion rolling guide unit, or Linear Way in 1978, these products have become important components for high demanding applications, IKO also developed a wide range of products made in stainless steel and fitted with special lubrication, suitable for clean room environments.

IKO offer patented C-Lube technology in many of their products. This built-in lubrication system remains maintenance-free for five years or 20.000 kilometers. IKO products are highly regarded in the worldwide marketplace and a perfect fit with TransDev’s broader range of quality components.

Linear Motion Rolling Guide Series

The Linear Motion Rolling Guide Series is a range of machine parts that are indispensable for reducing linear motion friction in the positioning mechanisms of machinery. We supply a large range of products including the linear way and linear roller way rail guiding systems, and a ball spline-based shaft guiding system. Available sizes range from the world’s smallest track rail at just 1 mm wide, to a very large version which provides high rigidity and high-load capacity. The Linear Motion Rolling Guide Series is widely used in various fields ranging from the most advanced semiconductor manufacturing devices to large machine tools or construction equipment.
