Linear Units with a ball screw drive
The specialist for precision and drive force: A Ball Screw Unit is used when a great deal of power and precise positioning are required.
This is made possible by the drive principle, which is based on a precision spindle. The speed and positioning accuracy of the system are largely determined by the lead on the thread. Using a spindle with a large lead boosts the travel speed that the Ball Screw Unit can develop.This design is less prone to uncontrolled carriage movement in vertical applications – due to the transmission ratio of the Ball Screw Unit, the drive only has to provide low braking torque.
