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.

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.
More details you can find in our brochure.
