Top Tips: Ball Screw Splines Deliver Compact, Precision, High-Speed Motion

June 12, 2023
Understand the benefits of ball screw splines to determine if this line suits your application.

Ball screw splines combine a driven-nut-type ball-screw assembly with a rotary ball spline. Both components are attached to a grooved shaft to provide linear, rotary, or spiral motion. Their product consistency has led to widespread acceptance by the robotics industry, where they are common in pick-and-place or assembly operations requiring high speed and high accuracy.

Download these Tips to understand the benefits of ball screw splines—and to determine if they suit your application.
