For machine designs that require precise linear motion at high speeds with maximum load capacity, stiffness and rigidity, linear motion systems provide the ideal solution. 

Why Thomson Linear Motion Systems?

From space-efficient systems to large, robust solutions, the wide range of Thomson linear tables and slides can be optimally configured for your high-precision application – no matter how harsh the environment. Available with the RediMount™ motor mounting adapter kit as standard, our systems strike the ideal balance of performance, life and cost.  

Customization Options

When your design requirements fall outside of the parameters offered by standard Thomson linear units, our engineers can work with you to customize a solution. In fact, our linear motion systems are built with customization in mind, so we can mix and match modules to accommodate your solution quickly and cost effectively.
