NB's unique Lock-Plates and Lock-Grooves allow for easy installation of the Keyless Ball Spline to custom housings.For immediate installation, the Block type consists of a highly precision machined housing and factory installed Keyless Spline Nut. For greater moment loads, NB also offers the Wide Block type which has two factory installed Keyless Spline Nuts.

Spline Nut has a ball retainer which allows for the Spline Nut to be removed and re-applied to the Spline Shaft without the ball elements falling out.There are four precision ground ball grooves on the Spline Shaft providing a guarantee of extremely smooth and accurate movement. The feature of optimum angle for ball contacts provide for idealistic preload which enhances the mechanical rigidity by eliminating radial clearance.
