Thomson Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of mechanical motion control solutions, has released a new video to showcase the benefits of its prism guided linear units for wash-down applications.
Kyle Thompson, Global Product Line Manager, Systems at Thomson, explains in the video, “The M75 Movopart belt-driven, prism guided linear unit is ideally suited to applications where shock loads, low noise, wash-down or caustic environment requirements are present. Thomson prism guides can work in multiple wash-down applications like food and beverage, packaging and material handling.”
Prism guides offer a cost efficient, smooth and reliable guiding system. Kyle explains, “Both belt-drives and prism guides can help save costs by requiring minimal maintenance.” Thomson prism guides have a unique self-aligning guide system with shaped polymer bushings running directly on the anodised profile surface.
Thomson strives to continually innovate and lead the marketplace in linear motion solutions and also share their application engineering and technical expertise. To that end, Thomson has authored a wide range of educational videos, webinars and technical white papers available now at thomsonlinear.com to inform and guide design engineers, explain technology alternatives and simplify the linear motion component selection process.
