High-Speed Ball Screw Drive

Nov. 1, 2005
The Ball Screw Drive AGK uses a high-performance ball screw in a rigid aluminum housing to drive motion at speeds up to 96m/min, even in extreme environments.

Specially designed screw supports and optimized bearing configurations reduce screw whip, allowing the AGK to achieve speed improvements up to 5 times traditional technologies when used in extended length applications, says the vendor. Available in ball screw accuracy classes 5, 7 and 9, and in sizes 20x, 32x and 40x, the AGK is well-suited for high-speed, high-precision machines where clearance or environmental conditions require a compact, protected ball screw drive system. The AGK comes as a complete, ready-to-install unit in lengths up to 6000mm, with optional integrated motor mounts for end-or side-mounted motors.
