Ball Screws With Ceramic Elements

May 5, 2005
Hybrid ball screws with ceramic rolling elements offer longer lifetime, lower friction, and less required lubricant.

Using balls manufactured from silicon nitride instead of tool steel eliminates microwelding in the ball nut. Available ball-screw sizes are 6 3 mm, 8 1 mm, 12 3 mm, 16 5 mm, 32 10 mm, 40 5 mm, and 40 10 mm. Applications for the hybrid ball screws include semiconductor production machines, inspection equipment, high-precision grinders, medical and dental devices, aerospace robotics, and analytical equipment.
