Miniature Ball Screws

The term “miniature” ball screws is usually acknowledged to be those ball screws with a screwshaft diameter of 10mm (0 .390”) or less. Within the aerospace community, ball screws that qualify for the term “miniature” have been widely applicated, especially in the Precision Munitions guidance systems.  They are also found within fuel systems....

Ball Screws Go Green

We've all talked for years about the revolution to reduce the use of hydraulics and replace with eco-friendly electro-mechanical actuation that removes the waste associated with driving constant running pumps, and most of all, elimination of hydraulic fluid leaks which plague even the tightest systems. This takes us to the next step: How to adapt our use of ball screws to a level which will work to help make our environment cleaner and safe....

Aerospace Ball Screw

Aerospace ball screw is just that a screw which runs on ball bearings. The aerospace ball screw and ball nut have matching grooves, and the ball bearings re-circulate in these races. There is no physical contact between the screw and the nut. As the aerospace ball screw or nut rotates, and the rolling balls reach the trailing end of the nut, they are deflected or guided...
