Lead screws are used in multiple types of medical imaging applications. Find out how they are used and what type of lead screw works in each type of imaging machine here.
Torque splines are highly customizable multi-functional linear motion assemblies that are used to provide two axes of motion. Teeth on a drive shaft match with corresponding grooves on a mating piece that transfer torque while maintaining angular correspondence.
Reviewing the characteristics of lead screws vs. ball screws can help you select the right screw-driven system for your linear motion application.
Linear actuators are mechanical devices used to generate motion in a straight line. Linear actuators can be lead screw driven and are used in a wide variety of industries and applications to convert rotary motion to linear motion.
Electric Cylinders (or electro-mechanical cylinders) are captive linear actuators designed as a modular system. Due to lower maintenance costs, enhanced motion control, and a long list of additional benefits, electric cylinders are rapidly replacing pneumatic cylinders in multiple industries.
There are many styles of anti-backlash nuts. Selecting the right nut style for your project depends on various factors, including; payload, accuracy, repeatability requirements, budget, space constraints, and available torque.
Linear motion positioning applications can often be addressed with a single-axis linear stage consisting of a moving rail, a fixed base, a carrier plate, and a linear actuator. However, a sizable number of applications require linear motion on multiple axes.
Helix Linear Technologies produces a full line of precision miniature lead screws for applications that demand micron-level positioning in incredibly small envelopes. These miniature designs enable our clients to build highly repeatable actuation systems.
Delta Line SA and Helix Linear Technologies are pleased to announce the development of a global strategic partnership, combining Delta Line's motion solution products and services with Helix Linear's engineering and advanced manufacturing capabilities in linear motion systems.
