Programmable Linear Actuators

Nook Industries Programmable Linear Actuators are ruggedly designed for continuous duty, larger loads, long service life, and higher speeds. They incorporate a direct drive or toothed belt drive for high mechanical efficiency that allows for a quiet running performance. Programmable actuators are supplied with either a ball screw or acme screw, and either a servo or stepper drive system. 

Both ball screw and acme screw drives available

  • Ball screws are used on high-speed applications.
  • Acme screw actuators designed for lower duty cycles where self-locking is desired.

Nook Industries can provide a complete system from one source including motor, drive, controller, and power supply.

Sensors & Transducers

Nook sensors are designed to meet the need for low cost position sensing on the PA Actuator™. It is highly accurate, with sensor repeatability up to ± .004” (0.1MM). This design allows users to install and adjust multiple sensors on a single actuator and integrate easily with a motion control system.
