Ball Screw

A ball screw is a drive, in which inserted balls transmit the force between screw and nut with extremely high efficiency.

Compared to lead screw, they are 80 - 98% more efficient. There is less friction due to a rolling movement, which enables a lower drive force and a higher possible movement speed. In addition, you benefit from an extremely rare stick-slip behavior with very sensitive movements and from an extraordinarily long service life due to the significantly lower wear.
