A flexible antibacklash coupling is needed between the drive motor and lead screw to isolate the motor bearing errors from the lead screw thrust bearing. Split clamps are recommended to prevent loosening by motor torque pulses.
Each thrust nut requires periodic lubrication. Universal can supply a recommended lubricant.
The lead screw must be rigidly mounted precisely parallel to the direction of motion. The O.D. of the thrust bearing must be a sliding fit in its bore, and must be clamped axially only.
For travel of two inches or less, the thrust bearing provides adequate radial support, and a bearing at the outboard end may be omitted.
The nut clamp area must be fully and rigidly supported by the other slide member. Coaxial alignment of the clamp area with the lead screw must be preserved within 0.002".
Universal offers optional mounting brackets to simplify installation of the dual lead screw assembly. A thrust bearing bracket provides proper support and alignment for the thrust bearing. A motor bracket is available to use with the thrust bearing bracket for simple, prealigned motor support. The thrust bearing and motor brackets are factory assembled. Depending on the configuration, a nut bracket, assembled by the user, is available.
Specify lead, travel, and accuracy required. Mounting brackets can be specified separately. Nonstandard leads can be supplied.
Nut assemblies must not be removed.
