Guard Plus - Status monitoring of ball screws.

Together with ifm electronic, Steinmeyer has developed the technology concept Guard Plus in which sensors in the ball screw drive measure the preload and temperature directly at the rolling contact zone. The evaluation electronics converts and analyzes the measuring signal and communicates with the machine control that has a light indicator and recommends an upcoming replacement of the ball screw. The measurement is even possible with superimposed or extraordinary operating forces. High cost savings are achieved by foreseeable service orders. A history record enables conclusions to be drawn about overloading the machine. In addition, the system helps to optimize the lubrication to the special requirements by application-specific load balancing.

10 new trainees start in their working life.

Welcome in our team!

Starting with the new year of training we welcome 10 new trainees. 5 prospective industrial mechanics and 3 cutting machine operators, and as well an industrial business management assistant start their occupational career at Steinmeyer. We wish all of them a good start.

Since many years the traineeship at Steinmeyer is really popular. “We´re happy, that we can attend so many young people with their start in working life again”, says Marc Bitzer, trainer at Steinmeyer. The promotion of the young trainees is very important for us. This is shown in the quality of the apprenticeship. This year, the first cutting machine operator from Steinmeyer  finished his apprenticeship with the grade “very good” and was taken in an unlimited employment  contract.

Ultra Thrust Ball Screws

Ultra Thrust Ball Screws

Specifically designed for very high loads. Ultra Thrust Ball Screws from Steinmeyer are not merely larger sizes of conventional ball crews. They have been specifically designed for the purpose of transmitting very high loads. The ball returns for example have been optimized for large ball sizes and for the specific use of such large screws. Also the robust nut body and the flange differ from conventional designs. Material selection and heat tratment take into account the special application requirements.
