MLSH60Z (FORCELINE) Linear Units

Thomson's (FORCELINE) MLSH60Z positioning slides are designed with the extremely fast SPEEDLine® guidance system.  With its successful patented plastic cover band, these units can be installed in just about any direction.  The surface of the unit's power bridge is designed with T-slots on similar spacing allowing easy X-Y assembly of gantry or Cartesian systems.
