Do you have a ball screw that is not preforming as it should? We can help. At the PST Group, our ball screw repair experts conduct a full analysis, determining the condition of your screw before recommending a course of action to get it running at peak performance.
At The PST Group, we work to understand your application. We will work with you to determine which specifications your ball screw needs to meet and why it’s not performing correctly.
We start by thoroughly cleaning the ball screw assembly and inspecting it for wear. After reviewing the assembly, our engineers will determine if you need a ball screw repair or rebuild. In some cases, we may even recommend a redesign if we think the ball screw may not have been properly designed originally.
If a ball screw rebuild is the best course of action, we will load it with new ball bearings and test the assembly. PST can also achieve the required backlash and pre-load the nut as specified for the application. We will have your ball screw rebuild done quickly. If there is more substantial damage, we offer a variety of ball screw repair solutions, including re-plating, machining, grinding or re-rolling. We’ll have it back to you as good as new.
Should our engineers determine a repair or rebuild is not a viable option, we will suggest a total replacement. If you have drawings for the ball screw assembly, we can manufacture from them. If not, we can reverse engineer the part. During a new design, we can adjust parameters for optimum performance in the specific application.
One of our customers requires regular ball screw repair services. The assembly is part of a machine used to make dental crowns. The material used to make the crowns creates a lot of powdery residue. Therefore, this customer relies on The PST Group to clean, polish, re-ball, re-grease and reassemble their ball screw to keep it performing properly.
Whatever the condition of your ball screw may be, we promise to recommend the best solution to get back up and running. We are proud to be the best choice for ball screw repair in Wisconsin and beyond.
