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:
motorized lead screws are also available in an actuator configuration
(MLA). The actuator is a fully housed solution – simply determine stroke
length, linear travel per step or revolution (lead), and precision
level to select an appropriate MLA. The actuator configuration offers a
complete housing and integrates easily into your assembly with a
selection of end mounting and connection options.
actuator is a fully housed motorized lead screw with a rotating screw
configuration. The bushing design included inside the assembly,
highlighted above, gives the actuator built-in anti-rotation and side
The built-in anti-rotation comes standard with every MLA. Anti-rotation may eliminate the need for external guidance.
MLAs are able to withstand some side and moment loading. Depending on
load, speed and motion requirements, MLA assemblies can withstand a side
load of up to 10% of axial capacity of the motor. For optimal
performance, side and moment loads on MLA configurations should be
minimized and avoided in the fully extended position.
