When selecting a ball screw for a machine-tool application, be sure to consider a variety of critical parameters first-including (but not limited to) load profile, linear and rotational speed, rates of acceleration, cycle rate, drive torque limits, environmental issues, required life, lead accuracy and system stiffness. All will have an influence on performance.
