WOOD DALE, IL – Thomson, A Danaher Motion Company, has significantly reduced lead times for some of its most popular Thomson slides. Lead times for Thomson 2DA, 2CA, 2BA, IB Series, IC Series, ID Series and IV Series linear guides have been reduced to just 2 days. Lead times for Thomson 2DB, 2EB, MS, 2HB, 2HE, 2RB AND 2RE driven systems have been reduced to just 4 days. The new lead times are effective for orders of 5 pieces or fewer. Lead times for higher quantities will remain 10-20 days, depending on the particular series of Thomson slide ordered.
