Thomson Industries roundRail guide systems are available as pre-assembled units at an installation ready stage. The systems provides reduced friction and easy and precise motion for a variety of normal and moment loading applications. The systems are typically used in medical, packaging, factory automation, automotive assembly, semiconductor, food processing, printing, machine tool and aerospace.

Multiaxis, turnkey systems are provided with slide tables in form of customizable RoundRail Linear Guides. The systems include motors, controls, drives, and electromechanical accessories.

A key feature of the RoundRail ball bushing bearing system is the compensation for any torsional misalignment, which may be caused by any incorrectness in carriage or base machining or deflection of machine. Notably, this compensation is achieved without a significant increase in stress to the bearing components.

The systems provide self-alignment in all directions. This unique design enables highly smooth travel during mounting on surfaces with wider tolerances.
