High Quality – Low cost, motion products
For volume applications

Having delivery problems getting linear guides? – Contact us for 1 to 2 weeks lead-time!


You might find your current supplier is taking up to 6 months to supply, or even longer. The Thomson 400 series profile rail linear guides from Micromech can in some cases be supplied in as little as 1 to 2 weeks. The 400 Series is a cost effective, transport grade Profile Rail solution for cost-sensitive applications and is designed as a drop-in replacement with industry-standard envelope and hole patterns.

These double-faced ball track-bearing arrangements provide compliance during installation as well as equal load carrying capacity in all directions. Caged and non-caged carriages utilise the same rail design, enabling efficient use of inventory since only one rail type needs to be stocked for either carriage type.

Main Features

  • Polymer ball-return tube reduces noise and vibration while retaining lubrication
  • Standard double lip end and longitudinal seals retain lubrication while protecting the bearing from contamination
  • Lubrication channels direct lubricant to individual ball tracks, maximising lubricating effectiveness
  • Double-faced ball tracks utilise a 45° face-to-face bearing arrangement, resulting in equal load-carrying capacity in all directions
  • 413 ball cage option provides increased travel smoothness, lower noise at high speeds, and individual lubricant reservoirs
  • Optional corrosion-resistant, hard chrome plating
  • Additional rubber wiper and metal scraper accessories

ThomsonWe also learn from our customers that American ballscrews (inch versions) are also in short supply. Here again we can help; on similar 1 to 2 weeks lead-time for some sizes we may have the answers to your delivery problems!

Thomson has the largest selection of imperial based ball screw products in the industry. We offer multiple configurations in most sizes including round vs. square body shapes, multiple circuit and load options, various mounting configurations (flange, thread, cylindrical), high capacity options, high-speed options, load lock safety, pre-load options and material options.

Precision Rolled
The most comprehensive imperial-based ball screw product offering in the industry. Includes preloaded, non-preloaded, internal return, cylindrical, and high capacity ball nuts – plus many more.

Precision Plus Ground
Zero-lash, high spring rate preloaded design which provides positioning accuracy and repeatability for machine tools, robots, material handling systems, electronic component insertion systems and more.

Bearing Supports
Complete package for simple mounting of Thomson ball screw inch assemblies. Flange and Base mounts available with dual angular contact bearings or floating radial bearing. Includes six high-quality models

Delta Tau tales of motion control…Episode 20: The Power PMAC CPU puts massive power in the frame

The latest Power PMAC CPU delivers potent computing and data processing features within a half rack footprint to create a powerful heart for machine control systems.

PMACOffering 800MHz or 1.0GHz operating frequencies, these very impressive clock times are backed up by full 32/64-bit architecture. The net result of this is excellent high-speed calculations, which is, amazingly, greater than ‘ten times’ faster than the already impressive Turbo PMAC.

The new CPU also has a huge dynamic range and resolution and support for very large memory. For example, 1GB or 2GB DDR RAM in a SO-CDIMM module with error correction. There is also 64MB of MOR flash for standard firmware and 1GB or 2GB built-in NAND flash for code/settings on board.

To complete the comprehensive features of this impressive new CPU unit there is an SDHC NAND flash for up to 32GB (camera card), USB2.0 host expansion, optional two PCI Express ports, optional SATA port 3.0Gbps, optional video output including HDMI port, two USB ports and 4GB on board NAND flash.

Putting it simply, this new CPU can form the beating heart of the most sophisticated control system and already designers and engineers are taking advantage of this leap forward in technology.

Micromech is the authorised systems integrator for Delta Tau high level, multi-axis control products, if you wish to find out more about these exciting products then contact Stirling Morley on 01376 333333 or stirling@micromech.co.uk
