Linear motors, ball screws, and rack-and-pinion drives are all good options for engineers designing electromechanical linear motion systems. Ball screws enjoy widespread use, and linear motors are noted for precision and dynamic performance. But with advances in precision manufacturing and the recent advent of electronic preloading, the accuracy and performance of rack-and-pinion drives can match or exceed that offered by competing hardware. And rack-and-pinion units often top the others in terms of durability, efficiency, and economics. Learn more about how these drives compare in this informative guide.
