• Screw Backdriving Efficiency

    Posted August 22, 2019 - Updated Dec 12, 2019

    Efficiency and Backdriving The mechanical efficiency of screw drive systems is often confusing. This is because unlike most power transmission components, V-belts, sheaves, timing belts, chain drives, and gear systems (with the notable exception of worm gear systems), screw drive systems actually exhibit two efficiencies – one in the drive direction (torque to thrust conversion) […]
