Wheel Head Drive

Ball Screw

Ball Screw

Ball screws are best suited for applications where high axial rigidity is required.
SIMODRIVE 1FT6 motors and a high performance toothed belt complement a high-precision drive system.


  • Backlash free positioning of the grinding wheel head in both directions
  • High resolution <0,1µm
  • Direct in-feed with immediate torque transmission
  • Maximum in stiffness.

SIMODRIVE 1FT6 motors are permanent-magnet synchronous motors that have a very small torque ripple and an almost constant torque characteristic. 1FT6 motors are available in a wide range of powers.
