Ball Screws and Nuts

Ball Screws deliver high linear speeds with minimal noise.

Promoting precise positioning in linear-actuation applications, long lead ball screws feature ball circulation system that maximizes linear speeds and minimizes noise. Products have nut with axial play (Series SL) or backlash elimination (Series BL). Also available, rotating nut design (Series SLT and BLT) allows drive motor to move with nut, resulting in linear speeds to 110 m/min. Long lead...

Ball Screws feature elastic spacer technology.
Ball Screws and Nuts

Ball Screws feature elastic spacer technology.

Ball Screws use elastic spacers to separate recirculating balls inside nut, allowing them to achieve extremely fine and slow motion consistently. When nut is fully assembled, slight compression of each elastic spacer between 2 adjacent balls ensures sustained close guidance during recirculation inside nut. Hole in middle of spacer allows adjacent balls to touch in event of jamming, preventing...
