      Hi
      According to my study of ball screw in catalogues of different manufacturers, i found that if we want ball screw of high lead/travel, the diameter of screw, length as well as diameter of nut will be large. Is there any solution or mechanism which can increase the lead of small screw diameter and nut diameter?

      As you increase the lead for a given diameter screw, the efficiency will decrease.
