Danaher Motion Offers Miniature Linear Guide

New Thomson MicroGuide(TM) is ideal for the semiconductor, medical and laboratory industries

Cleveland, Ohio - Danaher Motion introduces a full range of miniature linear guides-Thomson MicroGuides-to meet the high accuracy, quality, and longevity requirements demanded by the semiconductor, medical, laboratory, and testing industries.

Each MicroGuide is constructed of 440 stainless steel to help resist corrosion. Providing whisper quiet movement and unlimited stroke capabilities, the MicroGuide delivers high precision accuracy with dimensional tolerances within +/-0.010mm. Its accuracy is achieved by utilizing a gothic arch ball groove geometry which enables single rail operation and smooth operation.

"The sub-miniature MicroGuide combines high accuracy and long life into a one small package," states Patrick Rocco, Product Manager of Profile Rail for the Rails & Components Group. "In addition, it's engineered to industry standards as a "drop-in" replacement and will utilize the same hole pattern as an existing guide. This makes it an ideal product for both end users and OEMs."

The MicroGuide is available in 5mm, 7mm, 9mm, 12mm and 15mm sizes. The 5mm guide is cleanroom and vacuum compatible. Custom lengths and configurations can also be accommodated for specific application needs.

The Thomson MicroGuides are currently in stock and ready for immediate delivery. They are an ideal choice for front end semiconductor processing equipment, back end semiconductor packaging and handling equipment, medical diagnostic and imaging equipment, laboratory automation equipment, and testing and inspection equipment.

Linear Motion Systems, as part of Danaher Motion, provides standard and custom linear bearings, linear guides, linear actuators, slides and systems, polymer bearings, shafting, precision balls, ball and lead screws, gearboxes, adjustable speed drives, clutches and brakes. Its products are applied worldwide throughout a variety of motion applications in the medical, automotive, robotics, industrial, aerospace, semiconductor, and mobile off-highway markets.
