Power Screws

Ballscrews designed for high speed machine tools.

UltraSpeed series ball screws, available in 16 to 63 mm dia, enable speed ratings to dN = 160,000. With lead to diameter ratios from 0.5:1 to 1:1, linear velocities of 4,000 ipm are possible at acceleration of 2 g and higher. Ball return system uses precision ball deflectors to guide balls into return channel spanning whole nut length. Two-piece deflectors, precision milled from steel, minimize...

Inserts

Cutting Inserts improve efficiency and productivity.

Aluminum Cutting Inserts are available in WCGT 05 and WCGT 06 sizes to mount into existing OTM HOLESHOT(TM) and HOLESHOT(TM)-IS (Integral Shank) drills. Available in grade 12, inserts feature highly polished surfaces and up-sharp geometry for drilling aluminum. Their polished surfaces reduce coefficient of friction for drilling in soft, gummy material.
