Worburn, MA –Motion Control Components Application – 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 smoother running and better servo response. The result is superior positioning performance in laboratory instrument applications, such as pipetting and dispensing.

optiSLITE screws undergo a proprietary finishing process that removes micron-sized peaks on the shaft raceway. The result is smoother running screws that support the demanding requirements of delicate positioning applications.

“We understand the critical requirements of precision applications such as pipetting and dispensing,” stated Bruce Gretz, Executive Vice President of Steinmeyer, Inc. “optiSLITE miniature ball screws deliver the high performance needed in those systems to help your instruments distinguish themselves in the market.”

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.

Motion Control – World’s Smallest Commercially Available Ball Screw!

 

Steinmeyer Offers Worlds Smallest Commerically Available Ball Screw

Steinmeyer  Logo

BURLINGTON, MA – Motion Control -Steinmeyer, Inc. offers the “world’s smallest commercially available ball screw.” These ULTRAMINIATURE ball screws are available in diameters as small as 3 millimeter with a choice of two pitches – 1 millimeter or 0.5 millimeter, making this product ideal for medical applications, among others. Steinmeyer offers an extensive range of miniature screws from 16 mm diameter (with up to 30 mm pitch), down to this incredibly tiny 3 mm diameter. The ball screws are equipped with one of four types of ball nuts (cylindrical, flange, etc.), with or without preload. And, as with all other Steinmeyer ball screws, custom lengths are available with journals machined to a control drawing.

These Ultraminiature motion control ball screws are manufactured from standard tool steel (52100), hardened and then precision ground to meet ISO tolerances from P0 to P5. Stainless steel material is available as an option. Such high efficiency ball screws provide the perfect precision linear drive mechanism for a wide variety of medical devices. Because ball screws offer significantly higher efficiency compared to lead screws, they require smaller and thus lower power motors. This not only saves battery life on portable devices, but the high efficiency also means lower heating and much longer life. And they are capable of being back driven, an important prerequisite when it comes to tactile systems. The higher the efficiency, the better the force feedback!
