Thomson invented the world's first anti-friction linear Ball Bushing bearing in 1946. 60 years
of innovation and quality followed with world-renowned products such as 60 Case hafting
and the Super Smart Linear Ball Bushing bearings. As the need for greater accuracy
increased, we expanded our product line to include profile rail components. Today, we
offer a breadth of standard linear guides, custom configurations and complete solutions
for linear motion that allow us to not only be experts, but to also ensure we can make
