Shafting Is Ultra LightThomson offers ultra-light aluminum LinearRace shafting. At 65% lighter than typical linear shafting, it delivers smoother and easier linear motion positioning, making it an attractive and cost effective shafting option in any number of plain bearing applications. This shafting is constructed of 6061-T6 aluminum with an HRC 70 hard anodized finish, and is available in inch sizes ranging from 0.25 to 1.0 in. and in lengths up to 120 in. Metric sizes are available upon request, as are special machining options to satisfy unique application needs.

The ultra-light aluminum LinearRace shafting can be combined with self-lubricating Thomson FluoroNyliner bushing bearings to deliver high performance linear motion in applications with heavy loads, high contamination, and corrosive environments. It can also be paired with new FDA and USDA-compliant Thomson Food Grade FluoroNyliner bushing bearings for use in medical applications.
