					              ROLLER SCREW vs BALL SCREW

                                       Ball Screw Design



                                      Roller Screw Design


       ROLLER SCREW
   •   High Efficiency Screw Mechanism - Designed in late 1940s
   •   Many performance advantages to other screw technology
   •   Much less space for Equal Contact Area- No Conflicting Friction
   •   More contact points per area
   •   Continuous contact -Smooth running
   •   Higher rotational speed up to 5000 rpm
   •   High acceleration > 1,5 g
   •   Higher stiffness through number of parts

    Adjacent ball bearings within a ball screw have conflicting friction leading to heating and wear. The
planetary design of a roller screw does not exhibit this problem. Travel Life Comparison to Ball Screws For
similar-sized screw diameters, a roller screw will have many times the expected service life of a ball screw.

Life Time Comparison


                                                             Life Time:

                                                            Roller screw = 10 X Ball screw
