Ball screws and nuts THK
THK is a pioneer in linear guide mechanisms. The company has also developed several other unique mechanical components such as ball splines and ball screw grooves.
Ball screw is an efficient feed screw. The ball produces the rolling motion between the nut and axle of the screw. The drive torque is approx. one third or less of the torque of a traditional slide screw. That's why a ball screw is a great solution for applications in which it is desirable to save the drive motor power.
