MATERIALS: Thomson is offering a new Lead Screw, Ball Screw and Ball Spline Catalog that details the company’s complete family of lead screws, inch and metric series ball screws, and ball splines, including all relevant product specifications and performance attributes. Updates to this latest version of the catalog include detailed information on the new Thomson family of inch, metric and ball spline end supports - complete, pre-assembled packages designed to facilitate quick and simple mounting of Thomson ball screw and ball spline assemblies, that are also very well suited as a cost-effective drop-in support replacement in certain ball screw applications.
Additionally, more than 50 pages of this 250+ page resource guide is technical engineering reference material designed to help the reader correctly specify, install, maintain and service lead screws, ball screws and ball splines. A technology comparison chart and application analysis worksheet will help the design engineer determine the optimum linear actuation method for his/her particular application, while a visual product reference section assists with identification and replacement of existing Inch Series ball screw products already in the field.
