IKO bearings is held in high esteem in the marketplace worldwide as a leading manufacturer. Presenting with 70 years of experience, IKO specializes in manufacturing quality needle bearings, precision positioning systems / tables, linear motion rolling guides, and other machine components. Their products include:
1) IKO Linear Motion Rolling Guides. IKO’s linear motion rolling guides reduce linear motion friction within the positioning mechanisms of machines. Examples include their linear way and linear roller way rail guiding systems, and a ball spline-based shaft guiding system.
2) IKO Needle Roller Bearings. IKO needle roller bearings boast low cross-sectional height and high load capacity, so they exhibit rotational motion and incorporate a narrow, needle-shaped roller into a rolling element. These bearings are small, helping to reduce a machine’s overall size.
3) IKO Precision Positioning Tables. Created by combining precision machining technology with electronics, IKO’s direct-drive precision positioning tables boast a ball screw or motor embedded between the bed and slide table.
Guides, bearings, and tables by IKO are used in a wide variety of applications such as semiconductor, packaging, CNC machines, medical, and automation. Also, many IKO products feature their patented C-Lube Technology, a built-in system for lubrication that helps keep systems maintenance free for 20,000km and beyond!
In addition to the standard way of using bearings rotationally, the linear series has developed its area of application to include level sliding devices. IKO's Linear Motion Rolling Guide Series features a range of machine parts and products that are critical for reducing linear motion friction within the positioning mechanisms of certain machines. IKO manufactures a wide range of parts including the linear way and linear roller way rail guiding systems, as well as a ball spline-based shaft guiding system. They are available in sizes from the world's smallest track measuring in at just 1mm wide, to an extremely large iteration which provides high-load capacity and rigidity.

- Does IKO make linear motion products?
IKO designs and manufactures a wide range of machine parts that reduce friction in the positioning mechanisms of industrial equipment and machinery.
- What types of linear motion products does IKO manufacture?
IKO manufactures ball type rolling guides, roller type rolling guides, ball spline rolling guides, and other linear motion rolling guides as well. These products are available in a variety of styles and sizes, and used across many industries including semiconductor, medical, life sciences, solar, construction, and machine tool.
- Does IKO make rotary motion components?
IKO is known for their roller bearings, and they design and develop needle roller bearings to enable reliable and smooth rotational motion in various applications across many industries. Their unique design incorporates a thin, needle-shaped roller into the moving element to achieve high load capacity in a small footprint.
- What types of bearings does IKO manufacture?
IKO designs and develops a full line of rotary motion products including roller bearings, cam followers, roller followers, crossed roller bearings, shell type needle roller bearings, machine type needle roller bearings, thrust bearings, inner bearings, and more.
- What are plain IKO bearings used for?
IKO’s plain bearings ensure peak performance of articulating systems and support heavy and complex loads. Their product lineup includes many styles of spherical bushings, as well as rod ends to address misalignment and other angular motion challenges. These units are ideal for use in a wide range of machines and equipment in industries such as general industrial, automotive, construction, agriculture, and packaging.
- Where are needle bearings used?
Needle bearings are heavily used in automobile components such as rocker arm pivots, pumps, compressors, and transmissions. For example, the drive shaft of a rear-wheel drive vehicle typically has at least eight needle bearings–four in each U joint– and sometimes more if it is particularly long, or intended to operate on steep slopes.
- What are spherical bushings?
Spherical bushings handle complex loads and solve angular motion challenges without the worry of misalignment. IKO manufactures steel-on-steel spherical bushings, which handle alternate and shock loads in industrial machinery and construction equipment, as well as maintenance-free spherical bushings, which are suited for applications with fixed directional loads or in which lubrication isn’t possible or ideal.
