Rotating nut roller screws


The main purpose of this solution is to minimize the inertia phenomenon associated with long rotating shafts. SKF offers a range of satellite roller screws with the nut supported by bearings fitted inside a steel housing. The electric motor drives the nut via a tension belt, and the nut assembly moves along the fixed screw shaft.

Features and benefits

  • 72 series angular contact bearings are directly mounted on the nut outer diameter
  • Bearings are preloaded in back-to-back arrangement in order to fully support the moment created by the belt tension
  • 2 Nilos rings protect the bearings against pollution and permit lubrication for life
  • Wipers are mounted at each end of the nut in the standard configuration for better protection against contamination
  • The screw assembly is lubricated through a nipple mounted on the housing external diameter with standard SKF LGEP2, or according to customer specifications
  • SRR version with axial play
  • BRR version with backlash elimination
  • Compact solution ready for use in machinery
  • Simplified engineering for machine builders
