Choosing the Correct Drive Screw Type Is Critical to Ensuring Actuator Performance, Accuracy, and Repeatability

Screw drivetrains are the most common type of electromechanical linear actuators currently in use. Each of the three major screw drivetrain types – ball, roller, and ACME/trapezoidal – has its own advantages and disadvantages. This white paper offers a high-level overview of these three screw drivetrain technologies so that you can make sure that you’re getting the most out of your systems.
