Compact Accurate Slide Systems For Light Loads, Limited Envelope Applications

Nook Industries, a leading manufacturer of linear motion control systems and components, today announced the introduction of MM Slide™ linear slide systems, compact, highly accurate slide systems designed for light load, limited envelope applications.

"The MM Slide system is another example of how we are working at Nook to solve the complete spectrum of linear motion control challenges," says Ron Domeck, Nook Industries' President. "We will continue to add to our family of linear slide systems, as we have done with the double-shaftend-supported, lead-screw-driven MM Slide system, whenever we encounter specific applications that cannot be adequately addressed by our existing product line. Solving customer challenges through new product development is what we are all about."

Constructed of rigid, lightweight aluminum, MM Slide systems arrive factory assembled for convenient, accurate mounting. Each MM Slide includes a mounting carriage, four EXCEL™ linear bearings, two precision-hardened and ground Class L shafts, two integrated end support bearing blocks, a lead screw assembly, and a motor mount. MM Slide systems are available with high helix Speedy™ lead screws for high speed applications as well as Carry™ ball screws for fine incremental positioning. Adaptable motor mounts provide flexibility for NEMA 23 frame motors.
