Ball Screw Actuator
Ball screw actuators, also called drive screws, are devices that produce mechanical linear motion by converting rotary motion into mechanical energy through the use of ball screw and ball nut combinations. Tending to be very rigid, ball screw actuators are also highly accurate and precise due to tight manufacturing tolerances as well as the lack of compressibility in the ball bearings.
Highly durable, ball screw actuators can exceed lifetimes of 5,000 km if operated at low loads and speeds; higher loads and speeds lead to typical lifetimes of 3,000 km. A ball screw actuator’s speed is determined by the ball screw’s pitch. The screw lead is the screw pitch multiplied by the number of screw threads, and determines the linear travel of the ball nut per rotation of the screw. Read More…
