Name of Leadscrew Nut

  1. Aug 7, 2016 #1
    Hello all, I was wondering if anyone knew the name of the nut which has a flange or plate with a bolt pattern parallel to the direction of travel. They are often used in cnc stages. I know there are retainers for nuts that do the same function, but I am looking for the name of the nut that is all of that in one. Thanks in advance!

    I have only been able to find flanged leadscrew nuts like this
    but I am in search of something similar to what is purchasable for linear bearings like this
    this led me to think perhaps I was looking up the wrong name for the part

    Sorry the images I thought I had added in my last reply didn't show up. Yes something like the middle screw is what I had in mind.
