Highly efficient ball screw drives for the replacement of pneumatic and hydraulic drives

Hydraulic drives are used as standard in industrial operation for high-load applications with high drive forces. Nevertheless, hydraulic drives have a poor efficiency, so that technical solutions for the use of efficient electromechanical actuators would have great potential. Based on simulation results, the necessary design measures for the practical implementation of ball screws were investigated in the project.
