Motorized Ball Screw Actuator
- Elimination of motor coupling results in compact space-saving design and reduced assembly time.
- Compared to a lead screw, a precision ground ball screw offers higher efficiency, lower friction, smoother operation, no backlash, improved rigidity, and longer life.
- The higher ball screw efficiency can result in a smaller required motor package, reducing energy usage.
- Available with configurable encoder assembled to motor.
- Easy disconnect – field replacement of motor and/or ball screw is simplified, saving time and money.
- Motor and ball screw are combined into a single part number for ease of design and ordering.
