  • Selecting and Sizing Ball Screw Drives
    The selection of the correct ball screw assembly for a specific. application is an iterative process that determines the smallest envelope and most costeffective. solution. The design load, linear velocity, and positional accuracy are used to. calculate the diameter, lead and load capacity
  • Traction Drives
    shafts press upon the faces of the input and output cones. A speed adjusting lead screw tilts the ball shafts to increase or decrease the effective speed ratio of the drive transmission by as much as 8:1. Traction drives are best suited for applications with steady state loading.
  • Lubrication: Kerkote® TFE Coating
    The purpose of Kerkote (R) TFE coating is to supply a more even distribution of lubricant than is normally found when using standard self-lubricating plastics on steel. The wear life, coefficient of friction and resulting torque to drive a lead screw assembly are highly governed by the ability
  • Resolution, Accuracy and Repeatability
    ), drive mechanism (ball screw, lead screw, linear motor), and trueness of bearing ways. The measurement reference for Aerotech linear products is a laser interferometer.
  • Eliminating compliance in servosystems
    A traditional motor-mounting arrangement consists of a housed motor coupled to a lead or ball-screw shaft by a flexible coupling and a motor mount. A direct drive consists of a rotor assembly fabricated directly on the ball screw, eliminating duplicate motor parts, compliant couplings, and brackets
  • Keeping ball screws accurate and reliable
    a vertical surface to keep it from sliding. It's relatively simple to determine the lead accuracy of a ball screw before you buy it. Just ask the manufacturer and get a protocol. If you just want to know if a screw is straight and true so you don't have problems
  • A Critical Look at Acme, Ball, and Roller Screws for Linear Motion
    Balls screws for linear motion come in a variety of styles, each with its own benefits and downside. Leadscrew assemblies or drives are widely used to generate linear motion. And you can get this motion by turning either the screw or the nut. Three primary types of screws are used for linear-motion
  • What You Ought To Know About Ball Screws
    Whether the goal is high precision or low cost, ball screws are often the best option for linear actuation. Thomson Saginaw Ball Screw Co. Miniature ball screws are an efficient low-cost option for linear actuation. The mechanisms are used in a variety of automotive applications and come in sizes
