Nook Industries, a Cleveland-headquartered provider of linear motion control systems and turnkey components, has expanded its ActionJac product line – a worm gear screw jack line – to accommodate applications in the solar market.
Typical solar applications include solar fields with fixed-position panels, solar trackers that align solar panels to the sun, collection towers and solar module manufacturing machinery.
The expanded ActionJac line comprises standard machine screw, ball screw, stainless steel, metric and trapezoidal screw jack options. Each model incorporates a rugged worm gear set arrangement that uses an alloy steel worm, which drives a high-strength bronze worm gear (drive sleeve), the company explains. The worm shaft is supported on anti-friction tapered roller bearings with external seals to prevent loss of lubrication.
