Ball Screw Repair

Bearing Service can help you get more life from your ball screws. We distribute new ball screws from a variety of manufacturers. However, our ball screw repair services can offer you a way to reduce downtime and lower your maintenance costs. Whether rolled or precision ground, we can take your old screws, nuts and flanges and make them like new. Ball screw repair is an economical way to extend the life of your machine tool components - certain manufacturers' screws can be repaired more than once.

Among the capabilities we offer are:

  • Up to 6" ball circle diameter; up to 60 feet long
  • Grinding of screws and nuts, inch or metric
  • Repairing or rebuilding bearing journals
  • Restoring preload
  • Upgrading wiper technology
  • Reverse engineering of obsolete screws
  • Ball screw exchange program

Repairs are available from simple ball replacement and regreasing to the replacement of critical components. Emergency repairs are available within 24 to 48 hours from receipt of the components.
 
If your plant has many of the same CNC or other machine tools, our ball screw exchange program can prevent downtime and lessen repair costs.

Here's how it works:

  • After you replace a screw, send us your old ball screw assembly instead of throwing it out
  • We'll repair your old screw so you have a spare
  • The next time you have the same screw fail, use the repaired screw
  • Send us the screw assembly that failed for repair

This ball screw exchange program eliminates downtime caused from waiting for the manufacturer to send you a new assembly.
