The ball screws are used mainly as feed screws. In other words, ball screws are used as the mechanical elements to convert a rotational motion into a linear motion,or vice versa. Needless to say, the ball screws can accomplish their objectives only when they are used properly in combination with various other mechanical elements. These aspects are explained below, although not necessarily in the order of assembly procedure.
There are various ways to support ball screws. See the catalogues for details. Rolling element bearings are secured to the screw shaft with locknuts, etc.
Although the illustration above shows one way to connect a motor using a coupling, other method using a pulley or a gear may be employed.
The following components are the minimum requirements for using ball screws;
1. Support units (bearings, bearing brackets)
2. Nut bracket
3. Drive system (coupling, pulley, motor, etc.)
4. Linear Guides
