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.

Simple Bidirectional lead screw devices
Take a left handed and right handed trapezoidal thread from and accurately join them together and you have a simple gripping or expanding device. Numerous customers have used this concept within their machines. By being able to utilise the large range of lead screw diameters, as well as pitches, opens up the products possibilities.
