NPB is an Authorized distributor for Thomson Bearings. Thomson invented anti-friction linear technology over 60 years ago and has continued to lead the industry ever since. The Thomson brand is recognized and trusted as the global leader in mechanical motion technology.
Since 2018 when Thomson was acquired by Altra Industrial Motion,the product range has grown significantly. The Thomson family of linear and mechanical motion products also includes BSA, Neff, Tollo, Micron, Deltran and Cleveland - all now part of Thomson.
Thomson offers the world's largest selection of state-of-the-art linear bearings. Choose from several families of inch or metric linear bearings and accessories to meet your specific design needs, including our Super Smart Ball Bushing® Bearings, which offer load capacities up to 7760 lb. When used with RoundRail linear guides, the inherent self-aligning-in-all-directions design of these linear bearings allows for ultra-smooth travel when mounted to wider-toleranced prepared surfaces. When used with Thomson 60 Case® shafting, our linear bearings last up to 50% longer than conventional bearings.
