Captive vs. Non-Captive Linear Stepper Motor Actuators

For a lead screw linear actuator to convert rotary motion into linear motion, there must be an anti-rotation element on the nut design where the lead screw is rotating. The anti-rotation feature applies to an external linear actuator design as well. However, for captive and non-captive linear actuators where the nut is integral to the rotor and confined within the motor, the lead screw is prevented from rotating to translate rotary motion into linear motion.
