Nexen has expanded its offering of the roller pinion system (RPS) by adding a full line of stainless steel racks. The RPS is known for its positional accuracy, zero backlash, efficiency, stiffness, low noise and low maintenance.
Adding the corrosion resistance of the stainless steel product line ensures there is a solution to fit any linear motion application. The company’s precipitation hardened stainless steel is the ideal material when strength, fatigue resistance, high stiffness and corrosion resistance are required.
Compared to 303 stainless steel or 6061-T6 aluminium, the stainless steel can offer twice the load and life capacity while maintaining similar corrosion-resistant properties. The product can be used in food packaging.
