Steinmeyer Announces the optiSLITE Line of Miniature Ball Screws: Our Smoothest Raceways Ever Deliver Optimum Accuracy

Burlington, MA, USA – Steinmeyer, a global manufacturer of precision ground ball screws, introduces a new miniature ball screw line called optiSLITE. These screws feature low friction torque that delivers smoother running and enables greater accuracy. The result is superior positioning performance in semiconductor, optics, medical instrument, and metrology applications.

optiSLITE miniature ball screws are expertly manufactured in Germany like all Steinmeyer products. The ball screws undergo a proprietary finishing process that removes micron-sized defects on the shaft raceway. The elimination of these irregularities enables optiSLITE miniature ball screws to provide the highly-accurate positioning required in precision applications.

“All of our miniature ball screws are meticulously engineered and manufactured to provide highlyaccurate positioning,” stated Bruce Gretz, Executive Vice President of Steinmeyer, Inc. “with our smoothest raceways yet, optiSLITE miniature ball screws deliver lower friction torque and smoother operation than ever before.”

Like all Steinmeyer products, optiSLITE miniature ball screws offer dynamic delivery of linear motion at high standards of precision and longevity. The screws feature shaft diameters down to 5 mm and pitch down to 1 mm. Available in standard lengths and nut designs.
