Nook Industries’ line of Series 500 programmable actuators are designed for continuous duty and long service life. The Series 500 uses a direct or toothed-belt drive for better mechanical efficiency, while also allowing quieter running performance.
Ball screw-driven programmable actuators are available in parallel and in-line models with either a servo motor or stepper motor. The screw shaft is constructed with medium-carbon, induction-hardened, alloy steel and the ball nuts are manufactured from high-grade bearing steel. Both ball screw and nut are heat treated to a surface hardness of 56 HRC.
Acme screw-driven programmable actuators are made from 4140 alloy steel with a black-oxide finish with a 2C thread form and are available in parallel and in-line models with either a servo or stepper motor. Nook’s Acme nut material is selected for low friction, minimum wear, long life and clean operations.
Nook’s Series 500 programmable actuators offer an expanded range of performance by providing higher loads, longer life and increased duty cycles with higher speeds and programmability.
