Custom Lead Screw Nuts Are Designed to Meet Precise Application Requirements


Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions, a unit of Ametek/Precision Motion Control, offers customised nut designs for high-end motion control applications. With precision-moulded and machined custom nuts, engineers aren’t required to source a standard “off the shelf” lead screw nut that may not meet precise application requirements.

Haydon Kerk works closely with customers to develop a part especially suited for the mechanism being designed. Precision nuts made from polymers can be moulded in just about any shape, according to the company. The standard material used in the polymer-based nuts is self-lubricating polyacetal, which offers dimensional stability and is easy to machine, according to the company. Kerk polyacetal nuts are impregnated with tetrafluoroethylene for a permanent, self-lubricating thread contact surface.

Along with self-lubricating polyacetal, Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions offers a variety of Kerkite composite polymers, a registered trademark of Ametek Inc. Haydon Kerk also produces precision nuts from many other plastics and machines precision nuts from bronze, brass and stainless steel. Thread diameters for custom nut designs range from 2 mm up to 24 mm. Thread leads are available from as small as 0.30 mm in the smallest diameter nut (2 mm) up to a coarse 76.2 mm in the largest diameter nut (24 mm).

The custom design is just pretty good. I guess that would be the thing that makes it better. - Weather Shield Windows
