What will ball screw repair cost me? Contact us and you’ll speak directly to a ball screw technician that can answer any questions then give you the failure analysis along with pricing and delivery times right over the phone in 5 to 10 minutes. We’ll need the following information to assist you with your estimate and delivery time.
1: We’ll need the make & model numbers of the machine.
2: What axis is giving you trouble?
3: What is the approximate OD & length of your ball screw (threaded length & overall length).
4: Do you have a single or double nut (one nut or two separate nuts connected together with a keyway and a spacer)
5: Explain in detail why do you need your ball screw repaired? Is it out of backlash compensation, providing a poor finish, crashed, error codes, all the balls have fallen out, noisy in one or both directions, noisy in one speed, etc. Be descriptive, and explain in detail the issues you are having. The more information you provide, the better we can tell why it failed and the extent of the repair, with pricing and delivery times for that exact issue.
How fast can you perform ball screw repair? Normal delivery time is 3 to 7 days, depending on our workload and the amount of work your ball screw repair needs. Minor backlash issues, poor finish, etc. are generally faster than a seized or stuttering nut. If you need it delivered fast, we offer 24 to 48 hour delivery times with “Red Ticked Expedite Service” where we can work 3 shifts, 7 days a week, including holidays. Depending on your location, we can arrange to have the ball screw here in our shop that same night.
The best ball screw repair warranty in the industry! Your ball screw will perform like new up to 36 months from the install date covering all parts and labor. Your entire ball screw assembly is covered by warranty where we will repair/adjust free of any charges during the warranty period.
The #1 cause of failure for ball screws is chips, dirt & debris lodged in the nut. This causes premature wear of your internal ball bearings and the ID of your nut. This wear will show itself with out of backlash compensation issues, loss of tolerance, noise at high speeds, etc. A worn set of ball bearings and a worn nut will cause severe errors in your work.
Our solution is incredibly effective and inexpensive. We’ve developed our own wiper system that works 70% better than most OEM’s plastic ring they use as a wiper. We install thick industrial felt that is vacuum impregnated with epoxy resin and is vacuum formed around the threads of your ball screw shaft & inside your ball nut. This allows for a tighter seal and allows 70% less chips, dirt and debris to enter into your nut. All of our ball screw repairs come with our new wiper system. A clean and well lubricated nut will last for years, maintenance free.

Why do ball screws fail and need repair? The #1 cause of failure is a worn nut with worn internal ball bearings. The ball nut always wears more than the screw, the screw is used in one section at a time, where the nut is constantly recirculating and traveling on the ball bearings. A worn nut with worn balls will cause all kinds of issues from backlash, poor finish, noise, etc. The #2 cause of failure is chips, dirt or debris in the nut. Over time debris will get into the nut and cause damage to the nut and ball bearings causing premature failure, loss of tolerance and could eventually seize the nut on the screw.

All of our ball screw journal repair services are backed by a 36 month warranty covering the chrome and journals.
