Belt Drive typeZθ/θ/VZθ Actuator To be released in oct 2013

ddA hybrid type
It’s a Compact Actuator which takes advantage of BSSP(Ball Screw with Ball Spline)

【Features】

  • It’s a Compact Actuator which takes advantage of BSSP(Ball Screw with Ball Spline)
  • Not only Linear motion (Z)& Rotary motion(θ), but also Vacuum(V)are possible
  • Minimum number of components leads to simple design & saving space.

【Structure】

Belt drive type VZθ Actuator

【Operating principle】

  • Linea motion
  • For linear motion, drive the Ball Screw Nut by Z axis Motor through the Belt. In this case, Ball Spline Nut plays a role of slide guide & anti-rotating device.

  • Rotary motion
  • Turn the Ball Screw Nut and Ball Spline Nut at the same speed and direction, the shaft rotates without moving up & down.

  • Vacuum & blow
  • Bore Hollow can be multi uses. For example vacuum and blow function.
