WOOD DALE, IL – Danaher Motion announces that its
RediMount™ motor mounting system is now a standard feature on all
Thomson ball and lead screw driven positioning slides. The
industry-unique RediMount™ system is a flexible tool that simplifies the
integration of Thomson slides into automated assemblies. Customers who
in the past ordered “non-standard” motor adapter blocks and couplings
will now realize a significant cost savings and an average lead time
reduction of 2 weeks.
At time of order users simply request a standard NEMA mount, or provide mounting information specific to their motor, or provide the motor manufacturer’s name and part number. The housing and coupling are machined from common blanks to mate with the key characteristics of the customer’s motor: bolt size and bolt circle diameter on the motor flange; motor pilot diameter; and motor shaft diameter and length. This allows Thomson slides to easily mount, horizontally, vertically, inclined or inverted, to nearly any motor, with guaranteed alignment.
More information, and a flash animation showing the ease of mounting Thomson slides to nearly any motor, can be viewed at http://pull.xmr3.com/p/532-63AA/24606104/http-www.danahermotion.com-Sections.html
