Huco Dynatork has announced that it is distributing the Thomson BSA range of lead screws and ballscrews.

The introduction of the Thomson BSA range enables Huco Dynatork to provide a lead screw or ballscrew to suit virtually every application, either for immediate dispatch or on short lead times.

It also gives Huco Dynatork customers access to Thomson BSA’s rapid prototyping and design consultancy service for custom products.

With lead accuracy to less than 0.25mm/m and straightness to 0.42mm/m Thomson BSA lead screws ensure precision positioning.

They offer a combination of hardness, wear resistance, malleability and machinability.

Their superior surface finish is claimed to reduce wear on the nut in the lead-screw assembly.

Available in imperial and metric diameters from 3/16 to 3in and 6-24mm, in lengths to suit the application and with leads ranging from 0.012 to 2in and 0.3 to 50.8mm, most products are available ex-stock.

A variety of lead-screw nuts complement the lead screws, from standard thread-mount to anti-backlash versions.

These use a stainless-steel cam to ensure the nut halves are constantly in contact with both flanks of the screw thread.

This is achieved without compromising low torque and drag.

As a result every movement is both exact and repeatable.

The lead screws are said to be cost efficient without sacrificing accuracy or strength.

Designed for light or medium-duty applications, the lead-screw assemblies generate less heat and operate more efficiently than their competitors, and are suitable for systems that do not require the characteristics of a ballscrew.

For additional accuracy and driving heavier loads, Huco Dynatork can now offer a solution from the Thomson BSA ballscrew series.

A large choice of diameters and leads is available and if the application requirements cannot be met from the standard range, a special version may be specified.

Precision rolled assembly diameters are from 3/8 to 4in, their miniature counterparts from 4 to 14mm and ground ballscrew assemblies from 16 to 50mm.

The assembly can be tailored to meet precise application needs from a range of options including nuts, return tubes, flanges and wiper kits.

Huco Dynatork can also help customers bring new products to market quickly through the Thomson BSA rapid prototyping service for lead screw and ballscrew assemblies.

Most prototypes can be produced within two weeks and for more standard designs turnaround can be as little as one day.

Huco Dynatork is a world-class manufacturer of flexible couplings.

Whether the need is for high torsional stiffness, generous misalignment capability, high-speed operation or a capacity for operating in push/pull mode, Huco Dynatork can help. And if your requirements fall outside our standard range, we offer a customised service and cost-efficient small-batch production. 

Our range is highly comprehensive, comprising membrane and bellows high-performance couplings; Oldham and Uni-Lat general-purpose motion control couplings; Single-Beam, Multi-Beam and Step-Beam brands; and jaw/spider and double loop light power drive couplings. We also stock stainless steel and plastic universal joints.

Although the design and manufacture of couplings remains the cornerstone of our business, this is just one of the company's five main product groups. Huco Dynatork piston air motors is one of them, the only brand that can be used for precision motion control. 

Our quality hallmark is also impressed onto a huge range of power transmission and motion control components that have distinct design and performance benefits over other products in the market. In addition to an extensive choice of stock gears, racks, ground shafts and spline shafts, the product programme also includes the comprehensive BSA range of leadscrews and ballscrews.
