Thomson T-Case LinearRace shafting now available from Heason

Recently introduced by Thomson Industries Inc, and available with full support from its UK premier partner Heason Technology, T-Case LinearRace cylindrical shafting is an affordable linear bearing option for medium-precision motion systems. Aimed at high-speed linear positioning tasks in areas such as pick and place, gantry and packaging machinery, the high-grade hardened and ground steel shafting is suitable for applications where tough usage and optimal performance is required. Heason has extensive application experience in applying Thomson's linear positioning components and welcomes the new range that combines with Thomson's Industries' Linear Ball Bushing bearings

The new T-Case shafting range is available in a wide choice of diameters from 8 to 80mm, in solid and tubular sections, with many sizes available pre-drilled for straightforward installation. Through the range, lengths from 3m to 6m are available with cutting and end-machining services. The Class MM (h6) machined shafts are available in CF63 grade carbon steel for solid shafts and C60E grade for hollow shafts with hardening values to 60 to 63 HRC for durability and long life in the most demanding environments.

Heason Technology has a great depth of experience in specifying these components as part of its custom design and build service for motion-centric automation systems. The shaft and ball bushing concept offers self-aligning flexibility and practical dimensional tolerance values when applied to non-machined installation surfaces. The simple but sturdy design suits high-throughput production and test tasks, combining precision movement at high speeds of up to 3m/sec with fast acceleration.

Thomson's Ball Bushing bearings are available as separate components or combined as open or closed pillow block assemblies with built in adjustment. The range includes a double-lip integral wiper option that helps prevents ingress whilst maintaining lubrication for long life. The shaft and bush combination has a very low coefficient of friction, which ensures efficiency through the use of optimised motor and drive train components.

The new T-Case LinearRace shafting is part of a comprehensive range of Thomson's "˜RoundRail' cylindrical shaft products that include stainless steel, chrome-plated and aluminium variants as well as a miniature bearing range for use across a wide variety of applications from industrial transport tasks to high-hygiene machinery and medical equipment.
