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