The Basic Function 

Power Screws perform the basic function of turning rotary movement into linear movement. Due to such a bulky design, Power Screws are the ideal support to lift and move heavy loads. Additionally you can use them to load specimens and to clamp a work piece if needed.

The efficiency of a Power Screw is determined through the screw, angle and the other material. However, with differing size loads this is established through the wear, which is especially a problem in vibrating environments. With a reliable Power Screws Manufacturer, for instance Halifax Rack & Screw, you maintain full creative control over design.
