Custom Shafts by Nordex

Shafts are seldom a simple round cylinder.

Special features on shafting is required for many applications.
Retaining ring grooves, flats, threaded/tapped ends, drilled holes, lubrication features and possibly heat treated, plated, passivated or other operations.

“D” shaped shafts are an option to mount a Pulley using a Set Screw. Keyways are used to transfer torque on high powered mechanisms.

Clamping collars available for motor shafts that do not have features. A full line of Rotary and Linear Bearings available as well as mounting options.

Whatever the application we have the solution and will supply you with the complete part. We love saving our Customers time and money…

Nordex Anti-Backlash Gears

Anti-backlash gears are suited for precision applications where a high degree of accuracy is required.

They are also used when the drive axis must reverse direction while maintaining a high degree of repeatability.

These are available in compact and miniature compact designs. Standard and Custom styles are available in both our Inch and Metric series

Feel free to contact Nordex Engineering for assistance in choosing or designing a gear for your new, current or future applications.

Nordex Made to Print Custom Parts

Standard or semi-standard components are not relevant for all applications.

Compromise can lead to safety, economic and system failure. When size, environment,

weight, interface, load, fit & function are a challenge it is imperative to find a competent

high-quality machine shop that is affordable with a quick turnaround.

Detailed Engineering

CAD Models are an intricate part of detailed engineering. From conceptual design, to layout of parts, life cycles, analyzing the assembly to manufacturing methods – models are essential. CAD models are available online for Nordex standard components.

Nordex is well known for assisting customers with “custom design” of mechanical engineered components and assemblies.

Gears and Racks

There are various gearing options all dependent on the application.

Whether it’s a set of gears, rack and pinion, gear system or assembly values such as load, force, environment and mounting method need to be considered.

To successfully achieve your outcome allow Nordex engineering to assist in choosing the correct components.

Custom Precision Slide Assemblies by Nordex Inc.

Slide Assemblies are configured to your specific requirements. Mounting options, coupling, motor, anti-backlash or standard nut are a few things that are considered in the design stage. Travel distance and speed are calculated to meet your specific application. Used in many positioning applications ex. Robotics, Medical etc.

Indexing & Intermittent Motion

The Geneva Mechanism’s intermittent driven wheel is always under full control of the driver, no overrunning. The slots in the driven wheel must be accurately made and aligned for the driving pin to enter properly when cycling. Geneva Mechanisms, Ratchets & Pawls and Intermittent Motion Assemblies can be custom made.

Used in packaging, pharmaceutical and food industries.
