Thomson industries introduces mobile Linear MOTIONEERING product sizing and selection tool

October 31, 2018 - Thomson Industries has enhanced its Linear MOTIONEERING product sizing and selection tool for linear motion systems, reducing the time for component selection from hours to less than 15 minutes. The upgraded resource also incorporates the RediMount motor mounting adapter kit, the default standard for Thomson linear motion systems and precision linear actuators.

The Linear MOTIONEERING tool retains the Thomson engineering calculations for design engineers and has added new product families, interactive navigation, expanded global support and mobile access. 

With the navigation, users make all selections on a single screen. As they enter parameters, the system recalculates in real time, revealing how each choice impacts their available options. This gives them the opportunity to make changes without needing to navigate to another screen. Once satisfied, the user accepts the choice and receives the complete BOM and ordering materials.

System designers who already know what products they need will benefit from product filtering and comparisons. It is now easier for them to filter products on the attributes that most impact engineering calculations, such as cover type, material choice or environmental resistance. Or they can enter part numbers and receive the BOM immediately. To narrow their choice further are comparison tables, which sort options based on variables such as highest safety factor and lifespan. The tool has been tested and optimized for tablets and smart phones.
