KRISTIANSTAD, SWEDEN – Thomson, supplier of
innovative linear drive and guidance systems, today published a revised
brochure containing a complete overview of its wide and varied portfolio
of products for mechanical drive solutions. The range features Ball
Bushing® bearings and 60 Case® shafting, profile rail guides, lead
screws, planetary gearheads, complete linear drive systems, linear
actuators, worm gear screw jacks and clutches and brakes. Alongside the
renowned Thomson brand, the portfolio of linear and mechanical drive
products includes the BSA, Neff, Tollo, Micron, Deltran and Cleveland
brands, which are owned by Thomson.
Amongst the more recent products making their debut in this brochure are the Profile Rail 400 Series and the AquaTRUE TM gearhead. The Profile Rail 400 Series is designed for cost-sensitive automation applications. The double-faced ball track bearings make installation particularly easy, and the rail is suitable for loads up to 129 kN. Furthermore, compared to designs with standard ball cages, noise levels are reduced by up to 30%. The watertight AquaTRUE gearhead with stainless steel housing and output shaft is available with IP66/IP67 or 69K protection. As such it meets the strict requirements of extreme operating environments such as those typical of handling, packaging and filling applications in the food and drinks industry. Since AquaTRUE is even able to withstand corrosives and high-pressure water jets thanks to its high protection classes, no money needs to be spent on additional components such as housing, shielding or mechanical gears. AquaTRUE also has potential for use in jet cutting and in applications in medical engineering or the food industry (slicing machines for meat, for example).The new brochure is now available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. Further languages including Russian and Korean are to follow soon. The new brochure can be obtained from your local Thomson representative, or by going to the Thomson website (www.thomsonlinear.com) and selecting "Literature Order/Download"
