Upgraded RediMount kit simplifies integration of motors

Thomson Industries is launching an upgraded RediMount option, a pre-engineered, modular adapter kit for seamlessly installing motors or gears in less than five minutes. The improved option is now the default for Thomson linear motion systems and precision linear actuators, and its capabilities are factored into optimal sizing recommendations generated through the company's Linear MOTIONEERING product sizing and selection tool, accessible at www.linearmotioneering.com.

According to Alexander Schollin, Product Line Specialist EMEA & Asia at Thomson: "Lead time is minimised significantly as the motor or gear and systems can now be shipped with RediMount pre-installed. Whereas design engineers previously spent valuable time searching for the optimal motor flange kit and installing the individual components upon receipt, now they can order our upgraded solution, significantly reducing lead time and having only the simple task of bolting on their motor upon receipt."

RediMount accommodates a wide range of motor types and sizes or gears, which can be mounted to linear motion systems and actuators faster and with less effort than ever before. Schollin adds: "RediMount also includes updated smart part numbers with a specific motor ID, which reflect the motor or gear manufacturer and type. For engineers with old product numbers, we developed a translator, which converts the old product number to a new one including motor ID."

Furthermore, by using the Linear MOTIONEERING tool, customers can now check if their motor is powerful enough and meets the specifications of their application. This is a critical enhancement for project-based machine builders and automation partners. Products now available with the enhanced RediMount kit include:

  • M (Movopart) linear units: These are suitable for economical, transport-grade applications such as packaging, material handling and factory automation
  • WH (SpeedLine) linear units: The units are designed for high-speed material handling and packaging
  • WM (PowerLine), WV units (DynaLine) and MLS units (ForceLine) linear units: These units are developed for applications such as machine tool automation and test/measurement
  • T-Series actuators (T60/T90/T130): These rod-style precision linear actuators are designed for use in material handling, machining and factory automation applications. They are suitable for replacing hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders

Finally, apart from reduced lead and engineering time on the overall system, RediMount is also designed with a flexible coupling that matches or exceeds the high input torque of the linear unit.
