Kerk Motion Products announced its VHD series for eliminating drag and wear associated with high pre-load forces. The anti-backlash assembly provides maximum load-carrying capability and high axial and radial stiffness. Designed for smooth, quiet operation and long life, the assembly provides low drag torque by making use of the proprietary axial take-up mechanism, creating a stiff spacer which will continually expand to accommodate the wear which occurs during use. The self-lubricating series is effective in vibration and noise reduction challenges that can be encountered in the semiconductor industry. Since there are no recirculating balls and the thread forms are uniform, the nuts move smoothly with very low friction. Assemblies are available cut-to-length or with screws machined to specific requirements.
