Ball Screws

A ball screw is a mechanical linear actuator that converts rotational motion to linear motion with little friction, and vice versa. This allows the ball screw to operate for long periods without excessive wear.

The ball screw works by using the ball as a rolling element and requires only around a third of the usual driving torque, thus saving drive motor power.

The ball screw is suited for those applications where continuous movement is required.
