Garnet offers a wide range of ground and rolled ball screws.
Ball screws allow you to transform a rotary movement into a linear movement with a good friction coefficient and great positioning accuracy.
We offer different ground screws sizes; the smallest diameter is 3 mm with 0.5 mm pitch; the largest diameter is 100 mm with 20 mm pitch.
This motion transmission system can be used for multiple applications; the most common are: machining centers, milling machines, lathes, grinding machines, printing machines, robotic measuring instruments, X-Y tables, medical equipment, semiconductor equipment and industrial automation equipment.
SIZING BALL SCREWS AND ELECTRIC MOTOR
To carry out the correct sizing of a system with ball screw and electric motor it is necessary to take into consideration some data:
- Load: including moving mass and forces involved in machine processes
- Tilt angle: for example horizontal or vertical
- Speed: speed and acceleration, deceleration and maximum
- Stroke: total stroke length
- Accuracy: position and repeatability accuracy
- Work cycle: speed and cycle time
Once these data are known, it will be possible to size screw and motor.
Our technical staff has adequate tools to size the kinematics of a mechanical system and thus offer a support that allows you to easily and accurately calculate a brush DC, brushless AC or step motor.
