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.
