500 Series Ball Linear Guides

Thomson 500 Series Ball Linear Guides provide long life, exceptional rigidity, high dynamic and static load capacities, accommodation for high moment loads, high running accuracy, multiple sealing options and multiple lubrication inlet options. This allows for on-site field modifications and interchangeability with competitor offerings. Improved machine accuracies and rigidity reduce vibration and extend machine and tool life. This has a direct effect on operational efficiency which translates into cost savings for the user.

The 500 Series Ball Linear Guides are produced from high quality bearing steel.  Almost all carriages, rails, and rolling elements are through-hardened. The end cap is constructed of a high strength, glass filled nylon with nitrile rubber seal. Stringent quality controls are in place to ensure consistency of materials from the source, allowing us to ensure that we delivery the highest quality product.
