Thermo Electron relies on Reliance expertise

Thermo Electron has used Reliance's linear products in their AA series spectrometers since 1999. As the product has evolved Thermo Electron has repeatedly drawn on Reliance's linear motion expertise to help them achieve their specified criteria and maintain their accuracy requirements. Thermo Electron's design engineers first approached Reliance with an interest in using two leadscrews in its spectrometer design, one to control the prism rotation and the other to control the optical grating. As the AA series developed the designers were also challenged with providing a mechanism for height adjustment of the flame. Engineers at Reliance were able to satisfy this requirement by designing in a screwrail. Most recently, with both the evolution of the product and the manufacturing world's demand for higher quality yet lower price, Thermo Electron sought to simplify the spectrometer design. Once again turning to Reliance for support, the screwrail was replaced with Reliance's new screw driven RGLS slide. These slides integrate a leadscrew and slide into one neat, space saving package providing an economical solution with fewer parts which also facilitates assembly and gives excellent robustness and rigidity.
