Thomson Industries, Inc. has expanded its Online Thomson Education Center with four new technical training videos to help machine builders properly select and apply industrial linear actuators, square rails, round rails, ball screws, gearheads, clutches and brakes. "Thomson is committed to helping machine builders find the ideal motion control solution for their application, and typically that means far more than simply identifying the fastest, sturdiest, most accurate or even least expensive option," says Rob Gallagher, marketing communications manager for Thomson. "Our breadth and depth of product solutions, combined with over 70 years of global application experience and robust design tools and education resources such as these new videos, enables Thomson to help OEMs identify the optimal balance of performance, life and cost that satisfies their unique application needs."
The new training videos include: Industrial Linear Actuators vs. Hydraulic Systems, Square Rails and Round Rails, Ball Screws, Gearheads, Wrap and Friction Clutches. Additionally, the company provides educational resources like technical articles, webinars, a solution center, product selector, and Linear MOTIONEERING.
