IKO was the first company in Japan to initiate technical developments on the Needle Roller Bearing. It is now a leading manufacturer with many remarkable achievements in this field. The Needle Roller Bearing, which encompasses a thin needle-shaped roller has transformed the conventional image of a bearing employing round balls. As compared with the ball bearing and other roller bearings, it is small in size and light, but yet has a great load capacity. Needle Roller Bearings help to make the overall equipment more compact, thus saving money and resources. They are used in a wide range of applications such as motorcycles, industrial machines and office automation equipment where they have proven to be extremely reliable.
As a pioneer in the Needle Roller Bearing field, the experience and achievements amassed are reflected in the Linear series.
As opposed to the standard rotational way of using bearings, the linear series has extended its area of application to level sliding devices. A completely new product to make the linear motion rolling guide units more precise.
