Custom Linear Motion Systems

Linear Motion Systems customization options

Thomson offers intuitive, feature-rich sizing and selection tools that allow you to configure standard linear motion systems, but sometimes what you have in mind may not fit the parameters of our options. In these situations, we realize that unique application constraints often dictate equally unique linear unit configurations and modifications. Our systems are designed with this in mind as many of our products can be readily customized to suit specific requirements.

Thomson linear motion systems are built on modules that can be mixed and matched or custom machined in final assembly. These operations are configured to provide flexible assembly to accommodate custom orders, quickly and cost effectively.

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.
