Ceramic components

Ceramic LM Guide Type RCR, Ceramic LM Guide Type RSR, Ceramic LM Guide HCR, and Ceramic Ball Spline LT products use ceramic rails, blocks, and in most cases, ceramic balls.

The use of ceramic components, titanium stoppers, and resin circulation parts reduces overall weight and eliminates corrosion. The LM guides and ball splines are suitable for use in medical and semiconductor-manufacturing equipment.
