Spindle drives are the perfect tools when a load needs to be moved in a linear manner, e.g. lifted or lowered. Depending on the requirements, there are many design approaches: In case of high speeds and degrees of efficiency, the ball screw drive would be a good choice. A trapezoidal lead screw drive, on the other hand, is highly economical and provides a self-locking option.
The gear either drives the spindle or the nut. In the latter case, the spindle can pass through the gears which makes the drive very handy when there is only little space.
