The ‘Encouragement Prize’ at the Advanced Monozukuri Parts Awards 2019 was awarded to NSK for its DIN-standard ball-screw.
The award committee recognised the ball screw’s speed and quietness, as well as its potential to enhance accuracy and efficiency in machine-tool applications. NSK’s DIN-standard ball-screw has the capability to provide feed rates up to 100 m/min, the highest for a deflector-type ball screw, says the company. This speed leads to faster machine tools and, subsequently, reduced cycle times in machining operations, saving money for end users. Another factor favoured by the judges was decreased noise levels, at just 4 dB(A).
