Slide System Features

Series 100 Slide System

A Nook Series slide assembly is truly a "System" not just a "Component." The matched components used in Nook Slides result in better system performance. When Nook Slides Systems are used as sub-assemblies-set-up and alignment time is reduced. Nook Slide Systems are easier to specify and to order.

Precision carriage plates supplied with Series 100 and 200 help prevent misaligned shafts and bearings. Aluminum carriage plates include threaded steel inserts at key mounting locations. Protective, non-corrosive finish on all exposed non-wear components. Nook Slide Systems have been engineered by Nook Industries for use in the following applications:
