In complex assemblies, even miniscule movements can have an incredible impact on performance. This movement, called backlash, can be addressed in an assembly by using ball screws or ACME screws manufactured through the proper process. While screw type is often determined on a case-by-case basis, several broad factors should be considered when making that decision.
The PST Group worked with Lee Air, Inc. to engineer, develop and manufacture a ballscrew and nut assembly for their high speed flight surface control actuator. This project leveraged our experience and expertise with the aerospace industry. Read more about the process in this case study.
Because manufacturing components don’t last forever, it’s important to consider the life expectancy of your ball screw for your work. Experts at The PST Group can help you determine the life expectancy of your ball screw or reengineer an outdated ballscrew.
When it comes to reverse engineering, it can be difficult to visualize more efficient ways to manufacture existing components. Luckily, at PST, our engineers are reverse engineering experts, bringing new ideas and creativity to our projects, reducing costs and shortening lead times while manufacturing better products quickly.
