Trapezoidal thread spindles are the most commonly used and beneficial in applications where the linear movement, in horizontal or vertical direction, needs to be safely held. Due to the dense thread configuration there is a high friction which provides a self-locking feature advantage.
Product Features – Ball Screw
Ball screw spindles and nuts are used where precision, repeat positioning is necessary as well as where reduced friction is desired or where duty cycles are more frequent. Precision balls are fitted between the screw and the nut providing the smooth operation. Due to the lack of friction, a brake system is recommend to hold loads secure.
