Nook Industries Introduces Streamlined Modular Screw Assemblies


Nook Industries, a leading manufacturer of linear motion control systems and components, announces the availability of streamlined modular screw assemblies that are based on predetermined machining dimensions for quick delivery.

Before the introduction of modular screw assemblies, all machined products required upfront design work to document specific dimensions before being manufactured, creating extended lead times for filling orders. Now, manufacturers that need a machined screw assembly in a hurry can leverage standard Nook screw assemblies that are based on predetermined end machining dimensions. Although modular screw assembly dimensions are predetermined, customers still have some flexibility and can select custom travel lengths and accessories, including ball nuts, flanges, and EZZE-MOUNT end supports.

"In the past, machined products were considered non-standard and a drawing had to be developed before the order was released to manufacturing," says Ron Domeck, President of Nook Industries. "The pre-engineered screw assemblies offer the same high-quality precision without delays in engineering, which help us to shrink lead times. The ability to deliver product quickly is becoming increasingly important to meet customer requirements to fulfill just-in-time commitments."

Part numbers for virtually every Acme, ball, and metric screw assembly from Nook Industries are available via the Nook Industries' "Linear Motion Design Guide" or web site. Both resources provide technical information and step-by-step instructions for ordering modular screw assemblies.

2D and 3D models of Nook products — including ActionJac ILA Cylinders, ActionJac Worm Gear Screw Jacks, ActionJac Electric Cylinders, MiniLift Linear Actuators, MM Slide Systems, PowerTrax Linear Bearings, Pillow Blocks and Slide Systems, PowerAc Acme Screw Assemblies, PowerTrac Ball Screw Assemblies, End Machining & EZZE-MOUNT End Bearing Supports - in all major CAD formats, including AutoCAD., SolidWorks., CATIA. and Pro/E., are available for download at www.nookindustries.com
