Some machines need motion not only along a straight line but also oround a curve. To facilitate this, THK provides the "R Guide" and the "Straight-curved Guide" products. These devices allow for very accurate guidance that could not have been achieved through a combination of products offering purely conventional rotary and linear motions.

Our R guides are used in arcade bingo machines. A large capsule is shaken and rotated to scramble the bingo number balls. The R guides provid the machine with reliable oscillatory motion.
