MOTION CONTROL:Nook Industries‘ miniature metric 8×6 Ball Screw (BS) is designed for light load applications that deliver fast speed and close tolerance positioning. The rare size (8 mm diameter x 6 mm lead) is the only precision-rolled 8×6 on the market and is designed for compact applications that require the dual ability to be fast and precise-ideal for accurate positioning requiring a rapid approach and retraction.
Nook’s Precision Screw Group originally developed the 8×6 BS as part of its Miniature Metric Ball Screw Development Project primarily for medical applications. The combination of small screw and high-precision, however, is also well suited for a myriad of broad-based light load applications requiring close positioning and fast speed including; military, optics, instrumentation, sensors, etc.
Nook’s 8×6 BS is manufactured using precision rolled technology instead of grinding - which significantly lowers cost without compromising precision. Custom ball screw end machining options are also available to accommodate custom motor/bearing combinations.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
