Thomson currently has two account systems - one for the website and CAD model downloads, and one for e-commerce. We understand that two logins is an inconvenience and are working to consolidate our systems into one login process. Until we’re able to consolidate the two logins, please follow these guidelines:
Shaft support blocks are used for end or intermittent support where loads are light and slight shaft deflection is not a concern. Unlike shaft support rails, blocks do not permit longitudinal passage of open-type ball bushing bearings. Shaft support blocks enable clamping of shafts, type SB and eliminate the need for bolts to maintain shaft position. Shimming is suggested for high precision applications to eliminate the effect of variations in surface of base or manufacturing tolerances between supports.
Type SB shaft support blocks enable clamping of shafts and eliminate the need for bolts, etc. to maintain shaft position
Type ASB shaft blocks, manufactured from high strength extruded aluminum, provide either end or intemittent support in applications where loads are designed with a regerence edge on one side of the base
Type FSB flanged support blocks offere perpendicular mounting without the need for special adaptor brackets
