CLEARWATER, Fla., Jan. 20, 2013 — Micromo, a member of the Faulhaber Group, has introduced the BS22-1.5 spindle drive. In the case of rotary drive tasks, conversion and optimal adaptation of mechanical torques to the respective application usually occur via finely graduated reduction gear heads. High-precision lead screws in combination with DC micromotors, brushless DC servomotors or stepper motors also make it possible to convert the rotational movement into linear stroke or tensile movements. The use of ball screws in the series BS 22-1.5 enables linear movements with minimum travel variations of a maximum of 5 μm over the absolute total travel. In combination with motors and mounted components, such as high-resolution encoders, integrated motion controllers or stepper motors in microstepping operation, maximum precision is ensured. The spindle drive is suitable for optical filter positioning, glass fiber technology, lens adjustment in optical systems and microactuators for medical technology. The mechanical connection to the motors is implemented by means of a backlash-free coupling integrated into the lead screw. Numerous modifications such as variable screw lengths, modified screw nuts and custom lubricants are available upon request.
