Discover the appropriate spindle for your application
The parameters and requirements for the application of your lifting gear are crucial when choosing either a trapezoidal thread or ball screw, especially concerning the following:
- Duty cycle
- Repitition accuracy and positioning accuracy
- Stroke speed
- Stat. / dyn. loading (Hold load in position or move)
- Service life and maintenance
Characteristics_Trapezoidal thread or ball screw
Functionality | Rotating and translating spindle
R-Screw | rotating
The spindle is fixed to the worm wheel and rotates with it. The nut therefore moves up and down.
S-Screw | translating
The worm wheel has an internal thread and transforms rotary motion into linear movements as long as the spindle is prevented from rotating.
