IKO’s broad selection of accurate, durable guides and bearings will help your machine tools
produce quality parts.

Today’s CNC machine tools must address the ever-increasing need for parts made to strict quality requirements. When selecting a motion component for CNC machines, designers must satisfy sophisticated motion needs while also making sure the device delivers accurate and robust operation. Whether you need a motion device to carry heavy loads or to address complex motion needs of multi-axis machining centers, IKO has you covered with a variety of high-accuracy products that can also endure severe use.

Our lineup of heavy-duty linear bearings can provide the precision, heavy load carrying capability, maintenance and protection features that machine tool applications require. The ball and roller bearings range from 8 to 85 millimeters to suit small, three-axis machines to five-axis machining centers capable of handling large, heavy parts. Other IKO products that handle heavy loads include cam followers whose small radial internal clearances within the bearing can alleviate impact loads in tool changers and ensure a long operating life, and IKO crossed roller bearings that support rotary motion thanks to their ability to handle complex loads in all directions simultaneously.

Because components must endure everyday machine tool conditions like corrosion, chips, weld spatter and other debris, our heavy-duty linear bearings and cam followers can withstand the contamination that characterize many machining applications. IKO can also protect and extend your investment with innovations like C-Wiper protection for slide units and built-in C-Lube lubrication technology.
