WOOD DALE, IL – The Thomson Selection Guide to Inch and Metric Linear Ball Bushing® Bearings, 60 Case™ Shafting and RoundRail Linear Guides is now available. The guide contains helpful product overviews and comparisons, as well as all relevant product specifications and ordering information. This 250+ page resource guide also includes a content-rich engineering appendix to help the reader correctly specify, install, and maintain Ball Bushing bearings, 60 Case Shafting and RoundRail Linear Guides. The catalog features a number of new products, including Metric Super Ball Bushing bearings, as well as Stainless Steel Multitrac and A-bearings.

Metric Super Ball Bushing bearings are precision bearings with a coefficient of friction as low as 0.001 that allows users to employ smaller and less expensive motors, belts, gears and ball screws when replacing high friction, plain bearings.

Stainless Steel MultiTrac Ball Bushing bearings are built to thrive in harsh environments with temperatures up to 180ºF (82ºC), and feature a patented multiple track design that delivers up to twice the load carrying capacity, or 8 times the operating life, of conventional linear bearings.

Stainless Steel “A” Ball Bushing bearings feature all steel construction for rust and corrosion resistance, while providing maximum system rigidity in the most challenging application environments, including vacuum, ozone and mild radiation, even in temperatures up to 600ºF (315ºC).
