Ball-Screw Design: The Advantages of Internal Ball Returns (.PDF Download)

Feb. 10, 2016
Lead screws are one of the most common linear-motion devices, thanks to their low cost and reliability (see "A Short History on Ball Screws"). And recent advances in modern machining can make them extremely precise with lead errors below 1 micron. That’s why they can be found in linear drives for machine tools, aerospace controls, precision stages, and a host of industrial devices...
