Bosch Rexroth Corp.: Bosch Rexroth Corp.: Ball screw drive
The Ball Screw Drive Unit AGK from Rexroth uses a high-performance ball screw in a rigid aluminum housing to drive motion at speeds to 96 m/min, even in extreme environments.
Specially designed screw supports and optimized bearing configurations reduce screw whip allowing AGK to achieve higher speeds than traditional technologies when used in extended-length applications. Typical applications include palletizing cartoning pick-and-place operations and other large-scale packaging processes requiring movement of parts or boxes at high speeds over extended lengths.
