NSK: Precision Motion and Control for the Medical Industry
NSK is one of the world’s leading developers and manufacturers of precision components and systems for life-critical medical and laboratory applications. From surgical robotics and instruments, to medical imaging, to lab diagnostics and automation, NSK bearings, linear motion components and integrated mechatronic systems are noted for their positioning accuracy and speed, compact designs, low noise, and substantially extended service life.
NSK’s ballscrews are available in various diameter, length, lead, accuracy, preload and recirculation options to meet your application needs. Each ball screw is manufactured to ensure optimal performance by providing high accuracy and rigidity. If your application requires a compact design, NSK’s BSS Series Ballscrews are 30% smaller than conventional types. Although smaller in size, it delivers high precision and accuracy resulting in unparalleled smoothness in motion. Optional seals and NSK’s K1™ Lubrication Unit help to prevent the entry of contaminants, while providing maintenance-free operation.
Linear Ball and Roller Guides
NSK offers a full line of linear and roller guides customized to meet your needs. Each rail and linear slide is interchangeable; purchase rail or linear slide separately or as an assembled component. Choose from a range of size, accuracy and preload options. NSK’s K1™ Lubrication Unit is an optional feature that extends component life and provides maintenance-free operation.
NSK’s NH-NS Series Linear Guides achieve the world’s highest load ratings with higher speed, lower noise, and improved smooth motion. This series replaces the LH-LS Series Linear Guides with twice the operating life. Convenient drop-in replacement is possible thanks to identical mounting dimensions. In some instances, there is possibility to downsize linear guide and still achieve required fatigue life. Contact NSK Engineering for details and to verify actual loading conditions.
Monocarrier™ Linear Actuators
NSK integrates its ball screw, linear guide and support units into one unit to create Monocarrier™ Actuators. This lightweight single axis actuator is equipped with K1™ Lubrication Units to extend product life and provide maintenance-free operation. MCM and MCH Series handle light, medium and heavy loads depending on application specifications, and optional accessories are available for both series. Smooth motion, low vibration, high rigidity, and long operating life are all achieved with the use of NSK’s Monocarrier™ Actuator product line.
NSK has manufacturing capabilities to provide integrated linear multi-axis systems that utilize linear guides, ball screws, and Monocarrier™ actuators. This ergonomic design incorporates a sealed aluminum housing, and each pre-assembled axis reduces time and labor costs, while the motor-less design allows for customer flexibility.
Megatorque™ Direct Drive Motors
The Mechatronics division of NSK manufactures direct drive motor technology. This compact design features high torque and extremely high resolution, with maximum rotational speed and high rigidity.
SPACEA™ Series Products
For special environments that require specialty materials, NSK offers ball bearings, ball screws and linear guides. These products can be used in vacuum, clean room, corrosive, high temperature/contamination or non-magnetic environments. Each component is designed with advanced material, lubricant or surface treatment to meet high performance standards in challenging environments within the medical industry.
NEW I-SLIDE™ and FULRIDE™
NSK’s i-Slide™ and Fulride™ offer cost efficient linear motion solutions. The i-Slide™ uses high precision miniature ball bearings and is ideal for light load applications. Fulride™ features roller-type linear motion and handles higher load capacities.
