- Reduced motion errors help improve machine tool productivity through higher quality surface finish
- Eliminates or reduces time needed for burnishing/polishing
NSK has developed new ball screws that contribute to achieving higher surface finish quality for high-accuracy machine tools used in die and mold machining and other applications. The new product embodies ongoing NSK research and development into improving machining surface quality, thereby eliminating or reducing the time needed for burnishing/polishing work while also reducing the amount of drive torque.
NSK will continue to contribute to the elimination or reduction of surface finishing processes by improving the surface quality achieved in machining, and to achieving energy savings by reducing drive torque.
The new ball screws will be exhibited at “JIMTOF 2022 The 31st Japan International Machine Tool Fair” to be held from November 8-13, 2022.
NSK plans to start taking orders in select regions from April 2023, followed shortly by a global rollout. NSK aims to achieve sales of 100 million yen by 2024 of ball screws adopting this technology.
