SKF is introducing a new generation of ground ball screws to cater for all requirements from flanged nut ball screws with internal preload, to DIN standard double preloaded flanged nut ball screws, DIN standard double cylindrical preloaded nut ball screws, and tailor-made products. Perhaps most importantly, the new high-performance ground ball screws are now available within six weeks of ordering as opposed to the traditional 16-week lead times.
Designed to offer highly reliable and precise operation, the new ground ball screws offer high load-carrying capacities, fine resolution and high rigidity, while being robust enough to withstand occasional blows and shock loads even at high rotational speeds, which makes them suitable for use in the most hostile of environments. In addition, the ball screws offer a long operating life and require minimal maintenance, thereby eliminating system downtime and allowing considerable savings to be made in time and costs.
SKF's new ground ball screws can be supplied as part of a complete screw assembly with machined ends, to customer drawings, while nuts are also available with axial play. This allows customers to source all of their ball screw products from a single, high-quality manufacturer. Furthermore, this approach can reduce stock levels and, as SKF ball screws are manufactured to the highest standards, can significantly improve operating efficiencies and reduce overall costs.
Additionally, the new range of high-precision ground ball screws, as with all SKF products, is backed by the company's global network of sales and technical support offices, offering outstanding product availability and a reliable delivery service across the global supply chain.
