Thomson is the choice for optimized motion solutions. Often the ideal design solution for machine builders is not about finding the fastest, sturdiest, most accurate or even the least expensive option. Rather, the ideal solution is the optimal balance of performance, life and cost. Thomson is best positioned to help you most quickly configure the optimal solution for your application. Thomson actuators are easy to mount and operate, require no maintenance, don't leak hydraulic fluid, are easy to incorporate into an automated process. Once installed they will work reliably under the toughest conditions, year after year.

In a modern production environment, moving material quickly, accurately and efficiently is a big challenge. Using the optimal motion control products can enable you to help your customers save time and money, giving you a competitive edge.

Lead Screws

Thomson BSA® precision lead screws are an excellent economical solution for your linear motion requirements. For more than 25 years, Thomson BSA has designed and manufactured the highest quality lead screw assemblies in the industry. Our precision rolling machines ensure accurate positioning to 0.003 in/ft and our PTFE coating process produces assemblies that have less drag torque and last longer.

Linear Actuators

  • AC Voltage Type
  • DC Voltage Type

Precision Linear Actuators

Precision linear actuators are designed to deliver high performance in applications requiring continuous duty operation. They provide the highest thrust and speed of any electric actuator and allow you to design more compact machinery with maximum throughput.

Stepper Motor Linear Actuators

  • Motorized Lead Screw Actuators
  • Rotating Screw Configuration
  • Rotating Nut Configuration

Linear Motion Systems

The diverse range of Thomson guide and drive systems can be configured to work in harsh environments, at high speeds and in high-precision applications.

Lifting Columns

Along with a maintenance free life, easy installation, and light weight envelope, these lifting columns are a first choice for domestic, medical, and work place applications.

Worm Gear Screw Jacks

  • Trapezoidal Screw for rough conditions and good price/performance ratio
  • Ball screw for long duty cycle, high efficiency, and high positioning accuracy

Micron Motioneering True Planetary Gearheads

Planetary gearheads are used on high precision motion control applications which require a high torque to volume ratio, high torsional stiffness, and low backlash.

Precision Balls
