Ball screw

SKF provides solutions to applications that require driving by transforming rotary action into linear motion. The SKF high efficiency screws have rolling elements, balls or rollers, between the nut and the screw shaft. The SKF miniature ball screws, either with ball recirculation by integrated tube or with inserts, are very compact; back-driving makes them highly efficient. In our wide range, you are sure to find the product which fits exactly your requirements.
