When should I choose a ball screw system?

  • Ball screws translate rotational motion to precise linear motion and are very suitable for applying or withstanding high thrust loads.
  • Ball screws have a high efficiency due to minimal friction energy loss and have lower torque requirements than equivalent friction linear motion.
  • Ball screws are made to close tolerance, so applications of high precision/repeatability are suitable for ball screw systems.
