IKO (NIPPON THOMPSON)

With 50 years of experience, IKO specialises in quality needle bearings, linear motion rolling guides, precision positioning tables and machine components. Our products include:

Linear Motion Rolling Guides. IKO’s linear motion rolling guides reduce linear motion friction in the positioning mechanisms of machines. Examples include our linear way and linear roller way rail guiding systems, as well as a ball spline-based shaft guiding system.

Needle Roller Bearings. With low cross-sectional height and high load capacity, our needle roller bearings exhibit rotational motion and incorporate a thin, needle-shaped roller into a rolling element. Since these bearings are small, they help reduce a machine’s overall size.

Precision Positioning Tables. Created by combining precision machining technology with electronics, our direct-drive precision positioning tables feature a ball screw or motor embedded between the bed and slide table.

IKO offer our patented C-Lube technology in many of our products. This built-in lubrication system remains maintenance-free for 20,000km, and more.
