Ball screw drives are the preferred thread spindles in industrial and precision machines. A ball screw drive,
also ball spindle called is a mechanical linear drive that rotates in linear motion with little friction. It
consists of a ball screw, a ball thread nut in which the balls are integrated, and a ball-return.
The manufacturer KSS is regarded as a specialist for high-precision ball screw drives. In 2001 KSS has
developed the world's smallest ball screw, which scores with a shaft diameter of only 1.8 millimeters and a
compact, clutch-free ball spindle.
Ball screw drives from KSS combine high efficiency and accuracy. KSS
offers a wide range of ball screw drives, especially for applications requesting a minimum of internal
friction and an exact run, together with a low drive torque and a high stiffness.
The production of these quality products is done at the Niigata Prefecture plant in Japan.
