Choosing the Right Screw Drive Train

Whether used in an electric cylinder or a linear actuator, screw drivetrains are among the most common types of electromechanical actuation used in industry today. There is no “one size fits all” drive train linear actuator technology for every application. In reality, the selection depends entirely on what is most critical to a specific application. While choosing to use a lead screw seems straight forward, choosing between ball and roller screws can be daunting. You can simplify the screw driven linear actuator or electric cylinder selection process by approaching the application systematically and applying an actuator performance calculator.
