Design and Theory

Motorized lead screws combine a stepper motor and a precision lead screw together in one compact envelope. This combination offers several advantages over a traditional solution.

Improved Efficiency
Motorized lead screws are a more efficient solution to reduce power consumption, improve operating battery life and decrease motor footprint. With this improved efficiency, an increase in system load performance or a reduction in power consumption can be expected – all while having a lower cost of ownership.

Increased Torque Density
Motorized lead screws offer increased torque density over alternative solutions. By optimizing the motor performance and matching this with the ideal lead screw and nut design, Thomson has been able to increase the load capacity by up to 30% while maintaining the same motor footprint.

Reduced Noise
Optimized motor configurations and windings to limit motor harmonics and reduce motor noise at your application operating points.
