Heason Technology launches Thomson 400-series linear motion guide bearing

Heason Technology launches Thomson 400-series linear motion guide bearing
Heason Technology's wide range of precision positioning components now includes the 400-Series ball profile linear guide bearing system which was recently launched by its distribution partner, the mechanical  linear motion industry leader Thomson. 

Aimed at cost-sensitive applications across  industrial automation, including pick and place, materials handling, packaging equipment and transport technology, the new cost-effective linear motion guide is a drop-in replacement for competitive brands with industry standard fixing dimensions and a symmetrical 45 degree rail profile for equal load carrying capacity in all directions and improved tolerance for mounting surface inaccuracies.

The range covers six nominal rail widths from 15mm to 45mm in stock lengths of 4000mm and a wide choice of carriage styles including narrow and extra long variants to match application requirements. With individual carriage load capacity between 9kN and 130kN (approx) and a choice of two accuracy and two preload grades for precision and load matching, notable features for the 400-series include a polymer lined ball-return tube that reduces noise and vibration, and individual ball track lubricant channels that maximise lubrication effectiveness. 

The range also benefits from a very wide selection of options and accessories to optimise the performance and costs of the installed bearing system. These include a carriage with caged ball-spacing retainer option for increased running smoothness and lower noise at high speeds, as well as a standard non-caged version for general purpose use. Whilst the standard build specification for all carriages include double lip end and longitudinal seals that retain lubrication while protecting the bearing from contamination, additional rubber wipers and metal scrapers are available for increased durability in harsh environmental conditions. For improved corrosion resistance, hard-chrome plating is also available.  

Heason Technology is a Premier Partner programme member with Thomson and offers complete sales, technical support and service across its range of linear bearings and power transmission equipment. Heason also represents a number other leading motion control equipment manufacturers and through its own in house design and assembly service provides customised electro-mechanical positioning system solutions for challenging applications across, aerospace, automotive, defence, robotics, process control, packaging, motorsports and many more.
