A custom Ball Bushing® solution can fine-tune your application

For your custom and modified Ball Bushing needs, tap into the Thomson team’s vast technology and engineering experience. We will work with you to create the optimal solution for your application.

Examples of our customization capabilities include mounting flanges, dowel pins for alignment, adjustable housings, food-grade bearings and many more.

Custom Linear Ball Bushing Bearings

While the full selection of standard Thomson Ball Bushings and support accessories continues to meet the needs of countless linear motion designs, some applications’ requirements call for these products to be customized. No matter the configuration, our custom products deliver the optimal balance of performance, life and installed cost, and provide great flexibility to help you achieve a “just-right” solution.

Our experienced engineers can assist you to ensure your part selection is right the first time, while our support staff oversees proper initial application and comprehensive support once installed.

Available Customization Options


  • Corrosion-resistant balls and bearing plates
  • Nylon balls or alternating nylon/steel balls for quiet operation
  • Food-grade and other user-defined greases
  • User-defined etchings and markings
