The Punk® Nut

The PunkNut is the first self-aligning and translating leadscrew and ball nut.

The PunkNut allows:

  • Accommodation of misalignment and mounting tolerance issues that critically affect reliability and longevity
  • Faster installation as it accurately self-aligns
  • Accommodation of structural movement and flexing, which prevents screw bending and nut binding
  • New uses for linear actuators

The PunkNut accommodates single or double axis misalignment up to +/- 15° without any increase in load or wear on the system.

  • A two ring system can be used to accommodate angular misalignment in a single plane.
  • A three ring system can be used to accommodate angular misalignment in two planes.
