Thomson's Movopart MG (Rapidtrak TG) rodless actuator slides provide guided linear motion through a ball screw drive and a saddle that rides along the top of the actuator to carry the load. These units are designed with low cost in mind, high speed, thrust, and stroke length capabilities. Available in two versions, M (single nut) and MD (double nut), these versions are designed to provide lighter load and speed application performance while still providing precise positioning.Learn more about MG (TG) >
Thomson's BASELine WB linear drive models (WB40/60) provide enhanced reliability combined with very low maintenance requirements. With a low-backlash single nut within an aluminum profile, these units can be screwed directly to the machine frame using mounting strips. The compact interface between the linear drive unit and the motor, called the power bridge, now has the same flat design of earlier versions.Learn more about WB >
