Ball Screw Actuators

For lifting/lowering applications that require high speed movement, ball screw actuators are the ideal solution. With precision-formed tracks that create a repeating worm pattern through which numerous balls move to actuate the screw (hence the name), ball screw actuators provide faster and more efficient motion than other types of mechanical actuators—as much as six times faster than machine screw actuators. There is no better option for high speed lifting and lowering than a ball screw actuator.

C.H. Bull offers numerous ball screw actuator models to accommodate your lifting/lowering needs. We can also provide customized actuators that match your exact specifications. Request a quote on ball screw actuators, or contact us to learn more.

Ball Screw Actuators for All Applications

We offer ball screw actuators in four standard styles: Upright TranslatingInverted TranslatingUpright Rotating, and Inverted Rotating.

We have ball screw actuators available in a wide range of lifting capacities, from 500 pounds to 50 tons. Based on the weight of the load you need to move and your torque requirements, C.H. Bull can help you select the best ball screw actuator for your specific application.

A variety of power sources are available. We can supply a ball screw actuator with an electric motor, a pneumatic/air-powered motor, or a hydraulic motor, depending on your unique power requirements.

Ball screw actuators require motor brakes on the drive worm screw in order to hold the loads in place. Our ball screw actuators are available with or without brakes, as your application requires. For zero-backlash lifting and lowering without the need for a motor brake, consider our selection of machine screw actuators.

Numerous screw end options are available for our ball screw actuators. We can provide threaded ends, clevis ends, plain ends, or top plates, as your application dictates. Limit switches are also available to limit the actuator’s vertical travel; limit switches are directly operated by the actuator itself.

Every ball screw actuator we sell is constructed from the highest quality materials. Material options include steel, aluminum, and stainless steel.
