Thomson: Lead Screw and Linear Bearing in One

Aug. 23, 2013
The Glide Screw's integrated and pre-aligned lead screw and linear bearing design actuates a moment load or side load without additional support.

The design enables it to handle axial, radial and moment loads without any additional guidance, while it speeds installation and simplifies bills of material. An integrated lubrication block virtually eliminates maintenance requirements. Since the unit serves as both the drive system and linear guide, these features are perfectly aligned and cannot bind, and the mating components require no high tolerance geometric features. Numerous standard inch and metric sizes and configurations are stocked for immediate availability; custom diameters, configurations and thread leads are available with short lead times. Optional configurations are available to promote long life and reliable operation in temperatures up to 175 °C, clean room operation up to class 1000 and under the stringent demands of food processing and packaging equipment.
