Innovative Engineering + Precise Motion = MBSA Series
The Motorized Ball Screw Actuator (MBSA Series) combines one of NSK’s precision ground ball screws with a NEMA stepping motor. This innovative new product delivers a compact design eliminating the need for motor couplings. Superior to a lead screw, the precision ground ball screw offers:
- Longer Life
- Higher Efficiency
- Improved Rigidity
- Lower Friction
- Smooth Operation
- Zero Backlash
Designed to fit a configurable encoder that is mounted to the back of a stepper motor, the MBSA Series design allows you to select the controller/driver of your choice.
