It's Gettin' Screwy in Here — Ball Screws and Lead Screws

Sometimes a theme just happens, even when we didn't plan for it. Like this week, when inspiration struck we created a video AND an infographic that were related in theme without us even realizing the similarity. It all started with us filming a short demo about our PSD80 and PSD120 — a line of precision screw-driven linear guides. That same day, we launched our latest infographic about the broader topic of ball screws and lead screws.

Funny how that works, right? Subconsciously we knew how perfect these two were for each other.

VIDEO POST Our latest video demonstrates two different types of compact screw-driven linear guides we offer using the HepcoMotion® Hurculane® linear guidance technology. It's a quick video that explains the basics of this type of linear guide. Check it out below and let us know what you think!

INFOGRAPHIC POST Our latest infovisual explains a related concept — the difference between two types of screw-driven actuation used in linear motion systems like, say for example, our PSD80 and PSD120 — let us know what you think of our latest infographic!
