Guides make light work for optics

Guides make light work for optics In the demanding world of optical engineering and instrument manufacture, the latest precision linear motion guides from THK are providing solutions that not only enhance performance, but also cut costs and reduce maintenance requirements. As an example of the cost savings which can be achieved, the use of THK's HCR circular guides in the altitude rotation mechanism of medium aperture astronomical telescopes has helped to cut the cost of the telescope mounting pedestal to just one tenth that of the previous design. This means that far more of the telescopes, which are extensively used for research in the infrared band, can be built.
