HepcoMotion extends ballscrew and shaft machining capability
01 July 2010
HepcoMotion has invested further in its ability to machine special shaft ends and its BSP Ballscrew Premier range to meet customer requirements. Ballscrew Premier is a compact range of rolled and ground screws in a single DIN nut format that also includes a range of high lead and miniature screws. The most popular sizes are available ex-stock and suit applications where medium accuracy and short lead-time are the principal criteria.
For the more pre-load critical application, the company offers the same range with a C5 ground screw and an A2 lightly pre-loaded single nut. Complementing the series are high lead (BSPH) and miniature screws (BSPM) covering rolled C7 and ground grades. Any combination of accuracy and pre-load can be supplied across all types.
All ballscrews are supplied, as standard, with the ends machined and the nut assembled on the screw. A choice of supported-end and fixed-end bearings complete the products. Bespoke machining and other special requirements have always been provided since the introduction of this range but now HepcoMotion has taken this capability a stage further.
Investment in a completely new CNC process at its factory in Tiverton will enable the company to undertake more machining work on both ballscrews and shafts. “We are matching market demand for hard part turning with a facility that really adds value for our customers,” says production director Barry Engstrom. “The process ensures lead time reduction based on significantly improved cycle times.”
