A smooth ride

MPS ball screws have an extremely smooth ride. These aren’t just empty words, but real feedback from our customers. In fact, one of our customers was able to eliminate the calibration process from his system thanks to the very low and constant friction of our screws. The smoothness of the ride is made possible by our double nut design, by the precision of the components we manufacture as well as by the fine adjustments we make to the ball recirculation. This customer stated that “this is the world’s best ball screw” when he realized how much time, effort and money he saves in his processes by using one of our flagship products. 

Special ball screws

Most applications require specific mechanical interfaces, or special characteristics. Throughout a long-time experience with countless cases in various application fields MPS has acquired an exceptional level of expertise in the design and manufacture of customised ball screws, thus always gathering two essential features: precision and compactness.
