Fully Configurable Linear Bearings, Pillow Blocks and Slide Systems Now Available

Nook Industries, a leading manufacturer of linear motion control systems and components, today announced the availability of fully configurable 2D and 3D CAD linear bearings, pillow blocks and slide systems for download in all major CAD formats from its web site:

Engineers can now leverage the Nook web site to identify, configure, view, and download 2D and 3D models of Nook linear systems and components in their particular CAD format for immediate inclusion in their product designs. This capability saves engineers the time and effort required to model components from the Nook catalog and also provides engineers with additional flexibility for selecting the best configuration for their particular application.

Christopher Nook, VP of Marketing and Sales, says currently there are not similar on-line catalogs available from other, larger competitors. "This dynamic, configurable online Cad Model library is another example why Nook Industries is leading the design and manufacturing of linear motion components. We have the engineering know-how, manufacturing equipment and technology to accommodate customers needs faster and more reliably than our competition."
