Ball Screw Applications

What is a Ball Screw? A Ball Screw is a type of mechanical device which translates rotary motion to linear motion with as much as 98% efficiency. To do this, a ball screw uses a recirculating ball mechanism, ball bearings move along a threaded shaft between the screw shaft and the nut. Ball...

Stepper Motor Applications

Different stepper motors have different numbers of steps. These can be extremely precise, we have a range which has up to 200 steps, which equates to just 1.8° per step. Stepper Motor Applications Stepper motors are particularly well suited to applications where control signals appear as...

What is a Direct Drive Motor?

A direct drive motor can be defined as any type of motor where the load is directly connected to the motor. They do not require any mechanical transmission elements such as couplings; the motor directly drives the load. Using a direct drive motor eliminates the need for belts, gearboxes, and pully...

Slip Ring Applications

They are a mechanical device used to transfer electrical power and signals from a stationary to a rotary system. They, therefore, simplify the operation of a system or improve mechanical performance. They are compact devices and suitable for applications where space is restricted. They are a good...

What is a Servo Motor Used for?

What is Servo Motor? Servo motors, also referred to as “servos” are self-contained electrical devices used within motion control. They contain a brushless rotary electric motor and a rotational feedback device. We have been a supplier of servo motors for many years – our...
