Linear motion products include ball screws, linear guides, monocarriers, and robot modules. All products incorporate the K-1 lubrication system which seals out harmful contaminants while lubricating the interior of each linear motion product. This system also prevents oil-related environmental pollution which is a concern in semiconductor applications, and is useful in environments where lubrication is difficult to apply, such as line manufacturing equipment.
