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.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
