WB (BASELine) Linear Units (Legacy)

WB (BASELine) Linear Units (Legacy)

Thomson's WB (BASELine) (Legacy) linear drive models (WB40/60) provide enhanced reliability combined with very low maintenance requirements. With a low-backlash single nut within an aluminum profile, these units can be screwed directly to the machine frame using mounting strips. The compact interface between the linear drive unit and the motor, called the power bridge, now has the same flat design of earlier versions.
