Precision ball screw life expectancy

Typically, our precision ball screws are rated for millions of millimetres of travel at the rated dynamic load. However, they will travel farther than this at lower stress limits. Interestingly the load-life relationship is an inverse cube relation. For example, by reducing the load by half can increase the life by eight times. Conversely doubling the load would decrease life by 1/8.  ABSSAC’s engineers work closely with customer engineers to optimise the working environment of the ball screw to maximise life. Lets work together to solve your linear application challenges.
