    Since sometimes, good info pages get lost or unavailable, I decided to preserve it here in PDF document:

    Hi Fahim
    The grey pices are the ball bearing screws
    Bleu is the nut
    They sit in actuators like scn5
    The motor sits on ballscrew makes him rotate,and makes the nut move,on the nut sits the pushrod.
    And the actuator moves in and out. :thbup:
    regards Ad
