23/07/2011 | Upcoming Webinar: Lead Screws 101 - Basics for Design Engineers

You are invited to attend a free Lead Screw seminar for Design Engineers.  This training will enable you to quickly design and specify lead and ball screw actuated linear motion systems, saving you time and optimizing your machine designs. Reserve your spot today for this live webinar being held in two sessions on Wednesday, July 27, 2010 at 10:00 am ET / 9:00 am CT and again at 3:00 pm ET / 2:00 pm CT.

Spaces are limited, so register now!

Lead & Ball screws are mechanical devices for translating rotational motion to linear motion. Screws drives are made to close tolerances and are appropriate for high precision applications.  Innovative design engineers have learned that lead and ball screws can transform the most demanding industrial applications and provide the most effective actuation solution right drive for virtually every motion task and at a better price point than alternative technologies such as belts, cables, chain drives, and rollers. 

In 45 minutes you will learn:

  • Linear Motion Products
    • Lead Screw / Ball Screw Terminology
  • Introduction to Lead Screws
    • What is a lead screw?
    • Where do you use a lead screw?
    • Sizing considerations
    • Lead screw applications
  • Introduction to Ball Screws
    • Where do you use a ball screw
    • Available products
    • Sizing considerations
    • Ball screw applications
  • Customer support

This live online seminar is an event for mechanical motion design engineers at all experience levels.  The seminar has been designed to give solid, practical information - not a sales pitch.  Register today to learn how to design and build better machines with lead and ball screw technology.
