Thomson: Aluminum linear shafting
Thomson’s Ultra Light Aluminum LinearRace® Shafting is 65% lighter than typical linear shafting, and is constructed of 6061-T6 aluminum with an HRC 70 hard anodized finish.
Available in sizes ranging from 0.25-to 1.0-in. and in lengths up to 120-in. Metric sizes are available upon request. The non-magnetic material is useful for medical imaging applications, and corrosion resistant properties provide performance in washdown and submerged environments. Using on form, fill, seal machines reduces material costs. Can also be paired with new FDA and USDA-compliant Thomson Food Grade FluoroNyliner Bushing bearings for use in food processing, pharmaceutical and medical applications.
