Ball screw drive

September 2, 2006




The ball screw drive AGK unit from Rexroth 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 that of traditional technologies when used in extended length applications, says the company. Available in ball screw accuracy classes 5, 7 and 9 and in sizes 20x, 32x and 40x, the unit is suitable for high-speed, high-precision machines where clearance or environmental conditions require a compact, protected ball screw drive system.
