Linear Motion System Choices
If you’re an engineer designing an electromechanical linear motion system, which option do you choose; rack-and-pinion, linear motors, or ball screws? What are the advantages to each? Wittenstein outlines how rack-and-pinion drives compare to linear motors and ball screws in their white paper, Basics of Linear Drives.
