THK Realease New LMHB Linear Ball Bushing

Acorn Industrial Services Ltd is proud to announce the addition of the new type LMHB linear ball bushing, recently released by THK. This further expands the extensive linear motion product range offered by ACORN.

This innovative linear bearing takes the effort out of assembly, with a straightforward press fit design. Snap rings and stop plates are no longer required, as the nut can simply be pressed into the housing. This facilitates quick and easy assembly. Not only does this reduce time spent on maintenance and boost productivity, but it also helps to reduce the chance of errors occurring during the fitting process, extending the life of machinery.

Another pioneering feature of the THK LMBH linear bearing is its unique curved metal plates which provide a spring effect. This minimises clearance between the rolling elements and the shaft, facilitating smooth, silent linear motion in a wide range of applications.

Simon Gillingham, Product Manager for Linear Products at Acorn said: "The addition of THK's LMHB linear bushing complements Acorn's existing and extensive linear product range. As the new THK LMHB series bushes conform to ISO 10285 Series 1, existing users of this bush dimension standard can also now easily benefit from THK technology, as the THK LMBH is a simple drop in interchange. We are stocking the entire range of THK LMBH bushes and can offer full in-house technical support for any application. We are confident that this product will be a success in the market, and we look forward to working with THK to deliver it to customers throughout the UK."

The versatility of the LMHB linear bearing means that is suitable for use across a broad range of industries, including robotics, automation, packaging and medical. Wherever you need smooth and accurate linear motion, without a lengthy installation process, you'll find that this THK linear bearing excels.
