What is a spindle drive?

A spindle drive, is an electric motor that drives a threaded spindle. Depending on the direction of rotation of the motor, the spindle turns clockwise or anticlockwise. A driver or rotor can then be mounted on the spindle, which moves up and down on the spindle and ensures an axial movement. Depending on the thickness of the spindle, you can move different loads. However, if you have chosen the load too high, the spindle can also bend with a longer stroke length. Therefore, you must always observe the load specifications of the spindle motor. Once the spindle is bent, it will "wobble" strongly to very strongly. This can lead to total damage.

Spindle drives are available for tensile and compressive forces. Here in our online shop you can get spindle drives from Baumeister & Schack, Linak and TiMotion Technology.
