Micro Screws Provide Weight Savings and Reliability

The new Kerk Micro Series Lead Screw Assemblies from Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions provides opportunities for miniaturization of products and higher efficiency due to their small size, weight reduction, and precise shape. The screws are precision-thread rolled from premium-grade 303 stainless steel or custom heat-treated 400 stainless steel. The high accuracy and superior uniformity of the threads delivers precise motion and a reduction in noise and vibration. The screws come in standard configuration, which includes 2 mm diameter screws that have leads ranging from 0.3 mm to 2 mm per revolution. According to the company, the screws will require no maintenance and have a long life use. These screws will be integrated into Haydon’s line of linear actuators and be available as standalone components.
