NSK Americas examines how advancements in technology have reduced equipment size used for medical applications. Contributing to this trend, NSK has developed the MBSA Series (motorized ball screw actuator). The new design eliminates the need for a separate motor-to-ball screw coupling. The compact space-saving design reduces system inertia and eliminates alignment error that can occur when the motor and ball screw are separately mounted. Not only is the new design compact, but it’s also precise. NSK uses a precision ground ball screw versus the traditional lead screw option. This white paper details why a precision ground ball screw is the optimal solution.
