Gear drives couple the high torque capability of TRUE Planetary(TM) gearheads with the positioning accuracy of ball screws and the mounting flexibility of Quick Mount(TM) bearing support blocks. With the ball screws, there is 90%-plus efficiency when converting rotary motion to linear actuation and a choice of Precision or Precision Plus inch and Precision Plus metric ball screws. The Quick Mount bearing support blocks offer high-capacity angular contact bearings arranged in a back-to-back configuration for high stiffness and compact, low-profile design for space savings in tight installations.
