THK America, Inc: THK America, Inc: High-speed actuator
THK’s Type KLM Actuator achieves extreme accuracy through the incorporation of an optic linear encoder and linear motor.
Direct drive and fully closed control result in positioning accuracy 10 micron/500mm and positioning repeatability of +0.3 micron. Rigid, compact, and interchangeable with the company’s SKR Actuator, the KLM functions at speeds to 2 m/sec and with accelerations reaching 4.7 G. Patented THK Caged Technology employs a synthetic resin cage with curvature that cradles each ball and separates it from the next, so the spaces between balls retain grease and act as lubrication for long-term, maintenance-free operation.
