Ballsplines are linear motion systems, which can be used in SCARA robots, pick and place applications, and more. Offering flexibility for the design engineer, Ballsplines do not require a horizontal base like linear guideways. An upgrade from bushings, Hiwin ballsplines and nuts are made of the same high-quality materials of Hiwin’s ground ballscrews and ballnuts, which make them very strong. Features include:
- Transmission of torque –the steel balls traveling on the groove with angular contact offer relative movement between the nut and the screw to achieve torque transmission.
- Integral structure – the integration of the nut and support bearings allows the Ball Spline to achieve high precision and a compact design.
- Easy installation – with the optimized retainer design, the nut can easily be removed from the spline shaft and the steel balls will remain secure in the nut.
- Lubricant path – the optimized lubricant path allows grease to be directly guided to the ball track improving lubrication and increasing service life.
