Radially preloaded threaded nuts are available for the company’s external linear actuators with flange size 42 mm (NEMA 17). These backlash-free nuts readjust themselves automatically during operation and achieve high positioning accuracy and repeatability. They are offered in combination with the linear actuators of the LSA42 series. These actuators are available in many lengths and thread leads. They come with ACME or trapezoidal thread and facilitate the construction of space-saving linear axes. With the help of an additional encoder and a Nanotec controller, the thrust of the actuators can be monitored and their dynamics increased.
