Planetary Screw Assembly
The Planetary Screw Assembly PLSA from Bosch Rexroth comprises a screw with planets as the rolling elements. It serves to convert rotary motion into linear motion.
Planetary Screw Assemblies are designed to transmit high forces and extend the Screw Drives product portfolio at the upper end. Planetary Screw Assemblies are screw drives in which threaded rollers (the planets) are housed in a screw nut, their ends being lodged in discs with holes arranged around a pitch circle so that they rotate parallel to the axis of a special screw, causing the nut to move linearly along the screw.
The Bosch Rexroth Planetary Screw Assembly offers designers many opportunities to solve transport and positioning tasks in configurations with a driven screw.
