IKO designs and manufactures a variety of compact ball spline guides to achieve precise linear motion across a diverse range of applications, from medical equipment to semiconductor manufacturing. External cylinders enable smooth linear motion along a spline shaft. IKO ball splines also provide maintenance-free options from the C-Lube line with a built-in lubrication unit.
Nippon Bearing ball spline is a linear motion mechanism utilizing the recirculating motion of ball elements. It can be used in a wide variety of applications including robotics and transport type equipment. The NB Rotary Ball Spline can be used for both rotational and linear motion, including: SCARA robots, the vertical shaft of assembly equipment, and tool changers and loaders.The NB Ball Screw Spline combines ball screw and ball spline on a single shaft, allowing linear actuation, torque transfer, and rotational motion with a single compact assembly. It can be used in SCARA robots, the vertical shaft of assembly equipment, and tool changers and loaders.
