Waterbury, CT (PRWEB) October 18, 2008
HaydonKerk Motion Solutions, one of the world's premier manufacturers of non-ball Lead Screws, now offers its Kerk® NTB Series anti-backlash Lead Screw assemblies for applications in a variety of industries. The assembly's simple, compact design offers a variety of benefits including easy modification for custom applications. For example, the Kerk® NTB Series has been used in applications varying from dispensing adhesive in the semiconductor industry to serving as a valuable design solution for medical design and device applications.
Using Kerk's patented take up mechanism, the NTB Series maintains axial stiffness while system torque is held to a minimum, providing smooth operation and long life throughout its load and speed range. The Kerk® NTB Series Lead Screw assembly has eliminated the need to highly preload the nut to compensate for load.
- Operation to more than 300 million inches of travel is achievable
Kerk's NTB Series is flexible in terms of material; customers can choose the material that best suits their particular application, i.e. temperature, chemical compatibility, speed, and product life. In addition, the NTB Series does not force manufacturers to increase device size, as the NTB Series Lead Screw assemblies are designed to fit in tight spaces and ensure optimum manufacturing efficiency.
The nut is manufactured with a self-lubricating acetal designed to run efficiently on Kerk's precision rolled shafting. The screws are 303 stainless and are available with Kerk's proprietary long-life Kerkote® coating, which eliminates the need for external lubrication and maintenance. Available with a triangular flange, round flange or thread mount, the NTB Series Lead Screw assemblies can handle a dynamic load of up to 200 pounds. The assembly is available in a variety of diameters and lengths.
- Kerk's Kerkote® coating supplies a more even distribution of lubricant than is typically found when using standard self-lubricating plastics on steel
