Haydon Kerk Intros Micro Lead Screws
Precision lead-screws.
Hollis, NH — Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions is introducing its Kerk® Micro Series Lead screw Assemblies — a new range of micro-sized lead screws. Standard configurations include 2mm diameter screws with leads ranging from 0.3mm to 2mm per revolution and a variety of nut configurations of self-lubricating acetal and Kerkite® High Performance Composite Polymers.

According to the company, this new product line is an enabling technology that opens up a whole new range of designs. The Micro Series allows the miniaturization of products, reduced power consumption, and weight reduction without sacrificing performance or reliability. Developed in response to growing demands in many markets, the micro screws have been offered on a custom basis for more than 10 years. Now, with the introduction of the Micro Series, anyone can take advantage of standard designs, existing tooling, and quick delivery to bring their products to market swiftly and cost-effectively.

The new lead screws are available as stand-alone components as well as integrated into the high performance Haydon linear actuators. Manufactured of premium grade 303 stainless steel, the lead screw assemblies reportedly provide exceptional performance, long life, and require no maintenance. High accuracy threads with superior uniformity deliver precise motion and reduce noise and vibration. Optional Kerkote® TFE coating, an exclusive dry lubricant, extends nut life while reducing friction and drive torque requirements.
