Ultra Light Aluminum LinearRace Shafting

Ultra Light Aluminum LinearRace® Shafting

Thomson Ultra Light Aluminum LinearRace shafting is a lightweight alterative to standard Thomson 60 Case® in plain bearing applications.  With the advantage of being 65% lighter, our Ultra Light aluminum shafting also offers superior corrosion resistance for washdown and submerged environments - as compared to most steel shafting that corrodes over time. Being a non-magnetic material, aluminum shafting is ideal for medical imaging applications.
