3 Key Reasons To Use Ball Screws in Linear Motion

  1. High Efficiency – Ball screws typically operate at a minimum of 90 percent efficiency, which makes them an optimal choice in converting rotary motion into precision linear motion.
  2. Load Capabilities – A part of what makes ball screws versatile in so many industries is their ability to carry remarkably heavy loads at fast, efficient speeds.
  3. Cost-Efficient – In the long run, ball screw systems can prove to be a cost-effective alternative to pneumatic or hydraulic systems, which require constant electrical and air power.

Ball screws provide unique benefits when compared to other standards, such as roller screws or acme screws. Want more info for your ball screw application?  Click here.
