Thomson 500 Series Profile Rail Linear Guides

Special rollers are crowned to prevent roller edge loading when misalignment is present. This results in lower elastic deformation as the load increases compared to a ball carriage or face-to-face bearing arrangement.

Roller Guides have an increased load capacity with lower wear and minimum rolling friction. This is because a roller provides a much greater line contact area compared to a ball, which has a single point contact area. Additional benefits of the 500 Series include simple yet accurate installation with joint-free rails up to six metres in length.
