Selecting the correct anti-backlash nut style for your project depends on multiple factors, including; payload, accuracy, repeatability requirements, budget, space constraints, and available torque. Helix Linear Technologies manufactures a full line of anti-backlash nuts, including axial anti-backlash nuts, radial backlash nuts, and torsional anti-backlash nuts in flanged and threaded styles.
Helix Linear Technologies also manufactures custom anti-backlash nuts engineered to meet your application requirements. Customizations to anti-backlash nuts can be as simple as a material change (PEEK for medical uses or bronze for industrial projects) or a modified mounting flange to suit the allotted space and preferred attachment method. Or, your application may warrant a completely custom anti-backlash nut requiring a rework of the axial, radial, and torsional principles. Custom-designed anti-backlash nuts can be shaped to maximize stroke length, increase life, eliminate additional components, and reduce assembly time.
