Festo Introduces Ball Screw Axes with Recirculating Ball Bearing Guide EGSK and EGSP

Share Article

The company has developed a whole new generation of electric modular motion axes and systems

Excellent choice for electronics and precision applications

Festo’s new ball screw axes with recirculating ball bearing guide EGSK and EGSP put the focus on precision, repetition accuracy, compact dimensions, and rigidity. Both axes are excellent choices for electronics and precision applications as they can be used for chip handling, pick and place, vision inspection systems, measuring technology, and engraving machines – all with a high degree of precision.

The steel housing forms the guide rail, which prevents accumulative tolerances through production. The four rows of balls are arranged to give the guide carriage the same basic load ratings in both radial coordinate directions. Use Festo motor and drive to obtain a complete package from one supplier.

The new generation of modular motion systems

Mechatronic multi-axis modular systems from Festo offer hundreds of freely combinable and harmonized components for gripping, joining, rotating, and positioning. This saves both time and money. Ready-to-install motion solutions simplify design processes and protect user budgets. When creating machines and systems, designers can use the mechatronic multi-axis modular system with standardized handling systems and combine them individually. This saves a considerable amount of time and money. From procurement and logistics, design, and documentation through to assembly and commissioning, Festo provides everything from a single source with just one project or order number.

Tested in advance, including all design data and circuit diagrams as well as comprehensive operating and fixed-price guarantees, the ready-to-install handling systems shorten the distance from idea to machine and reduce the number of interfaces. More than 100 freely combinable and harmonized electric and pneumatic components are available for accurate 3D positioning. New electric drives have significantly extended the application spectrum.

Modular systems such as the EGSK and, EGSP form the cornerstone of Festo’s new generation of solutions for machines and processes.
