Thomson 500 Series Roller Linear Guides

Thomson 500 Series Roller Linear Guides

The 500 Series Roller rigidity is achieved by using the equivalent of a back-to-back bearing arrangement, complemented by special rollers that 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 over the ball as a result of the increased contacting surface across the length of the roller. A ball provides a single point contact area, while a roller provides a much greater line contact area. This results in a substantially higher load carrying capacity and lower wear with minimum rolling friction.
