Linear Slide Systems

A Nook linear slide assembly is truly a “System” not just a “Component”. The matched components result in better system performance. Nook Slides Systems are used as sub-assemblies to reduce setup and alignment time. These linear 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 is used on all exposed non-wear components. 

Modifications for linear slide systems include:

  • Special screws: ground thread, precision rolled with preloaded nuts, high lead screws, metric lead screws
  • Protective boots in a variety of materials (neoprene, metallic, etc.)
  • Special motor mounts with Servos motors, steppers motors and drives
  • Custom carriage machining

Series 100 Slide System

Nook Series 100 slide systems are pre-assembled and ready to mount. They consist of combinations of Nook Linear Ball Bearing Pillow Blocks, HG shafting, carriage plates and shaft supports. Aluminum carriage plates include threaded steel inserts at key mounting locations. All exposed non-wearing components have a protective, corrosion resistant finish.

  • Select between either two single bearing pillow blocks or a single twin bearing pillow block.
  • Two single bearing pillow block arrangements allow for varying width applications. Twin bearing pillow block provides the most compact dual bearing arrangement.
