RVD Differential Roller Screw

When sub-micron resolution is essential to your operations, our RVD differential roller screws are an ideal fit. A specialized internal design allows the rollers, nut and shaft to move relative to each other (differentially) and these factors can be adjusted to achieve leads down to 0 mm. 

Each RVD is a custom design made specifically for a customer application. CAD models are generated specifically for each customer and application. The product tables shown are intended to illustrate some possibilties – many more options are available.


  • Shaft Diameters from 12mm and up
  • Lead Starting at zero millimeters
  • Excellent repeatability, precision, and reliability


  • Exceptionally small leads:
    Even with large screw diameters for heavy equipment loads, RVD series systems can still accommodate leads down to 0mm, allow both high accuracy moves and very low input torque.

  • Sub-micron accuracy:
    The differential operation of RVD roller screw systems allows for incremental movements of less than one micron. Many customers achieve positioning accuracy measured in nano meters.

Advantages & Applications
