NTB SERIES ANTI-BACKLASH LEAD SCREW ASSEMBLIES
Waterbury,CT,October 2008-HAYDONKERK OFFERS FLEXIBLE NTB SERIES FOR WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS Allows OEMs to Use Fewer Parts at a Reduced Assembly Time Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions, one of the world’s premier manufacturers of non-ball lead screws, 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 that it can be easily modified for custom applications. For example, the NTB Series has been used in everything from injecting glue onto chips in the semiconductor industry, to serving as a valuable design solution for medical design and device applications. Using the Kerk® 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 NTB series assembly has eliminated the need to highly preload the nut to compensate for load. Haydon 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 is designed to fit in tight spaces and ensures optimum manufacturing efficiency. (more) The nut is manufactured with a self-lubricating polyacetal designed to run efficiently on Haydon Kerk’s precision rolled shafting. The screws are 303 stainless and are available with Haydon Kerk’s proprietary long-life Kerkote® TFE coating, which eliminates the need for external lubrication and maintenance.
