Thomson offers the most complete line of industrial ball screws in the industry - offering asemblies in both inch and metric diameters and leads as well as an extensive selection of accessories.
Linear Motion Systems are the best choice for material handling and other factory automation applications that require high speed and/or long stroke capabilities. Modular, self-contained and self-supporting, they are easily assembled into X-Y and gantry configurations.
The re-engineered, pre-assembled positioning slides can be used virtually anywhere. They can support and move a range of loads and provide high precision and tight tolerances.
Linear actuators are designed for rugged, reliable linear motion applications. Numerous choices in stroke, load, motor type, feedback, limits, and control options make these linear actuators very versatile.
The compact design and higher load capacities of their precision linear actuators make them ideal for flexible integration in tight areas. These programmable precision linear actuators are available in a wide range of voltage, thrust, stroke and mounting configurations.
Thomson offers a complete line of True Planetary™ gearheads to complement all of our servo and step motor products.
