Kerk® Leadscrews are available in standard diameters from 1/8" (3.2mm) to 15/16" (23mm), with standard leads from .012" to almost 4" (0.30mm to 92mm) including metric and left hand threads. Custom sizes and leads can be special ordered. Most stock screws are manufactured from 303 stainless steel and are produced with Haydon Kerk's exclusive precision rolling process. Other materials are available on special order.
Positional bi-directional repeatability (with the Kerk anti-backlash nut) is within 50 micro-inches (1.25 micron) and standard lead accuracy is better than 0.0006 in. /in. (mm/mm). Lead accuracies are available to .0001 in./in. (mm/mm).
Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions™ has a wide variety of standard nut designs which offer many features to choose from. Once an application’s most important requirements are understood, it becomes a matter of choosing the nut which best meets those requirements. Occasionally, more than one nut might do the job, but in the vast majority of situations, one nut design will stand above the rest. Patented anti-backlash designs, special purpose anti-backlash, general purpose, mini and custom design nuts are available. All Kerk® nuts can be modified to some degree to help them better meet specific requirements.
