400 Series Profile Rail Linear Guides - .PDF file.

Thomson has extended its range of linear guides with the addition of the 400 series ball-guided profile rails for industrial automation and pick-and-place applications.

Its installation sizes and hole patterns have been adjusted to meet general industry standards, which means that the 400 series can be used as a direct replacement for existing systems.

As a result, this profile rail can be used as a replacement in all applications for medium loads without incurring additional costs for design or modification work, which can be very time-consuming.

The ball tracks, positioned at an angle of 45deg to each other, ensure precise alignment, making installation easy.

They also offer even loading rates in all directions, meaning that these systems can be used in a range of applications.

The re-circulating ball bearing made from polymer plastic keeps a noise to a minimum when the system is running and the scraper ensures that lubricant does not escape outside the unit.

The 413 design with ball chain is said to guarantee even quieter operation.

Even at high adjustment speeds, noise is kept to a minimum.

This version also features integrated lubrication pockets between the individual balls.

The 400 series benefits are said to include: straighter rails thanks to advanced grinding technologies; simple installation and increased accuracy with continuous rails of up to 4m; smooth, low-noise movement thanks to a patented, integrated and sprayed re-circulating ball bearings and optimised geometry; increased lubricant service life thanks to the lubrication pockets integrated in the re-circulating ball bearing; carriages available in various designs and sizes; modular designs that can be modified on site; rail and carriage options available directly off-the-shelf or within short delivery times; adjustment to individual requirements thanks to an extended range of accessories.

The 400 series is said to be suitable for applications in the field of industrial automation, pick-and-place applications for materials handling and transport technology, and installation in industrial robots, food-processing plants and packaging industry systems.
