SKF USA announced long lead ball screws designed for linear actuation in high-speed, low-noise applications. Their design allows the drive motor to move with the adjustment nut to help reduce inertia and use less power. Versions include the Series SLT with axial play and Series BLT with backlash elimination. Diameters range from 25 mm to 50 mm and leads range from 20 mm to 50 mm. All can be equipped with end-machining and with the support bearing package pre-assembled. Custom options include double protection wipers and brush wipers in cylindrical and flanged nut configurations, plus custom lead screws lengths. Applications include packaging and automation systems, laser cutting, and production machinery.
