Complete range of standard and custom miniature ball screws featuring high precision and extremely low friction
MPS Microsystems offers a complete range of high precision ball screws for positioning less than 5 µm. Mostly custom-made, these screws ensure smooth and uniform movement resulting from the high precision of their thread, achieved by grinding. MPS Microsystems miniature screws are made exclusively of stainless steel and are fitted with double nuts to allow fine adjustment of the axial play.
You have a wide choice of options for your ball screws.
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.
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.
MPS Microsystems has developed an online shop where, in just a few clicks, you can order all the standard references of our linear systems: ball screws, linear bearings and ball bushings. Available items are dispatched to you within 3 days. Don’t forget to stop by!
