Video: Elegant Solution for Z-Theta Motion

The SCARA robot is a great example of the simple ball screw used for Z-axis motion, but this new configuration from NSK is a simple design with a few key benefits over the simple ball screw. In motion control rotary motion is common and so is linear motion, but what if you need to combine them in the same assembly? In this video, we spoke to Jeff Molter, linear segment manager at NSK Precision America. NSK makes bearings, ballscrews, motors, and other motion control components, such as linear ac…
