MLSM (FORCELINE) Ballscrew Driven, Ball Guided Linear Units

MLSM (FORCELINE) Ballscrew Driven, Ball Guided Linear Units

Thomson's MLSM60D/80D (FORCELINE) positioning slides comes with a patented guide and screw support system. The guides are separated and positioned at a 45° angle to reduce the overall height. With its patented plastic cover band, these units can be installed in just about any direction.
