Waterbury,CT – Precision non-ball lead screws and custom nuts create exceptional value HaydonKerk Motion Solutions™, a premier manufacturer of linear motion products, offers precision lead screws and customized nut designs in motion control applications where ball screws may have been originally considered. Kerk® lead screws and custom nut designs create exceptional value for designers and end users in a variety of industries.
For vertical applications, Kerk lead screws can be designed to self-lock and prevent back driving, unlike traditional ball screws. Utilizing a sliding motion between the nut and the screw to convert rotary input to linear output motion, the Kerk non-ball lead screws offer accuracy comparable to ground ball screws. Kerk lead screws are manufactured with a choice of proprietary coatings, depending on the application requirements. Kerkote® and Black Ice™ dry lubrication coatings eliminate the need for external lubrication and maintenance. HaydonKerk Motion Solutions can also add value to an application by designing and molding customized application-specific nut features. As with all Kerk brand anti-backlash and freewheeling nuts, customized nuts can be molded using Kerkite® high performance polymers or various customer-specified specialty materials.
Manufactured from 303 stainless steel and produced with HaydonKerk Motion Solutions’ exclusive precision rolling process, Kerk lead screws are available in standard diameters from 1/8” (3.2mm) to 15/16” (23mm), with standard leads from .02” to 3” (.5mm to 76mm). Custom materials, sizes and leads are available upon request.
