Steinmeyer optiSLITE Miniature Ball Screws Deliver Smoother, Quieter, and Longer Life Performance in Linear Axis Stages!

Motion Control – Enhanced Miniature Ball Screws
Steinmeyer optiSLITE Ball Screws for Stages


motion control - miniature Ball ScrewsWoburn, MA –Motion Control Components – Steinmeyer, a global manufacturer of precision ground ball screws, recently introduced an enhancement to its miniature ball screw line called optiSLITE. This feature delivers lower friction torque for longer life, smoother running, and better servo response. The result is superior performance in linear axis stage applications such as atomic force microscopes, nanoscale machining, and wafer dicing.

ptiSLITE screws undergo a proprietary finishing process that removes micron-sized peaks on the shaft raceway. The result is smoother running screws which are essential in applications involving precision positioning. The high quality ball screws used are imperative to ensuring that linear stages are able to meet demanding nanopostioning requirements – extreme reliability and repeatability of 1nm.

“Many of our customers utilize Steinmeyer ball screws exclusively because they perform at world-class levels year after year” stated Bruce Gretz, Executive Vice President of Steinmeyer, Inc. “now with optiSLITE miniature ball screws, the quality and precision that our customers have come to expect will only improve.”

Like all Steinmeyer products, optiSLITE miniature ball screws offer dynamic delivery of linear motion at high standards of precision and longevity. The screws feature shaft diameters down to 5 mm and pitch down to 1 mm. Available in standard lengths and nut designs.

For more information on Steinmeyer premium ball screws please contact our engineers at infoUSA@steinmeyer.com

The Steinmeyer group is comprised of two manufacturing divisions located in Germany. August Steinmeyer GmbH & Co. KG (located in Albstadt) has been setting standards for high precision ball screws for over 40 years and prides itself on high quality, innovative designs to meet demanding customer requirements. Our Feinmess Dresden (FMD) division has been producing an extensive line of high precision positioning systems for well over 130 years.

Motion Control Application – Wearable Pumps for Medical Devices Count on Ball Screws from Steinmeyer!

Motion Control – Application
Motion Control Application - Steinmeyer Ball Screws used in Medical Pumps


motion control - steinmeyer logoWoburn, MA –Motion Control Applications – Motion Control Components – There has been a tremendous amount of innovation lately in the design of medical devices and lab instruments. One of the critical aspects of the new products being developed is linear motion. And Steinmeyer is proud to be directly involved in providing drive solutions to our cutting-edge customers. We currently have several on-going applications involving wearable pumps driven by ball screws, and I wanted to share some of the specifics.

Implantable medical devices naturally place extreme requirements on size, materials, lifetime, and reliability. These constraints drive up cost and complexity. Incorporating all of this function into a single implantable is extremely challenging. Not only that, but servicing the pump requires major surgery!

One solution is to break down the system into two components—one implantable and one wearable. The implantable component handles minimal functionality and consists simply of a balloon. The wearable component enjoys much looser design requirements. In the projects we are working with, a wearable pump is used to drive compressed air through a catheter that passes into the body.

A wearable pump offers the advantages of being small, quiet, and very reliable. That is where precision ball screws come into play. Steinmeyer offers standard miniature screws in diameters 3 to 16 mm. The diameter typically required for this application ranges from 8 to 12 mm. Custom products can be developed as well for applications that need it. Steinmeyer ball screws also feature our proprietary super finishing process, called optiSLITE. This improves the surface quality of the shaft threads for reduced friction torque, quieter operation, and longer life.
