Linear units offer high precision with longer stroke lengths

13 December 2015

Thomson Industries has released a new video to introduce the benefits of the WM80, ball guided, ball screw driven linear units.

These linear systems are designed for high thrust, payload, precision and stiffness with force up to 12,000N and repeatability to 0.005mm. The WM series is suitable for applications where high precision and rigidity are critical, such as machine tool automation and test and measurement.

The WM80, ball guided, ball screw driven unit has an internal movable ball screw support that allows for longer stroke lengths and high speeds. It has a self-adjusting plastic cover strip designed to provide environmental protection for the internal components while reducing friction to a minimum.

Stroke lengths of up to 11m are available for all screw driven units.
