Nippon Thompson Co. Ltd. is a specialist in the manufacture and sale of needle roller bearings and linear motion products!
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.
IKO Linear Motion Rolling Guide Series includes a range of machine parts that are essential for reducing linear motion friction in the positioning mechanisms of machinery. IKO supplies a large range of products including the linear way and linear roller way rail guiding systems, and a ball spline-based shaft guiding system. Available sizes range from the world’s smallest track rail at just 1 mm wide, to a very large version which provides high rigidity and high-load capacity.
