THK’s Type RSX features an optimized circulation structure.
THK released its Type RSX Miniature LM guide that features an optimized circulation structure. The guide is available in a standard Type RSX-M and a Type RSX-WM with a longer overall LM block length, wider width and higher rated load and permissible moment than the Type RSX-M. The outer dimensions of the Type RSX-M range from 8mm to 16mm (H), 17mm to 32mm (W) and 23.4mm to 42.9mm (L). The outer dimensions of the Type RSX-WM range from 9mm to 16mm (H), 25mm to 60mm (W) and 31mm to 55.5mm (L). Additional features of the LM guide include a built-in retaining wire that prevents balls from falling out and a groove contact structure that receives loads in all four directions.
