ballscrew news

At Kugelmotion, we like to keep our customers up to date with developements in both our ball screw manufacturing and our ball screw repair departments.

In this section you can read about customer experiences, ball screw repair and other precision engineering manufacturing and repair services offered by Kugelmotion.


  • Kugelmotion has manufactured it's first precision ground ø80 ball nut in house for a CME FCM 3000 travelling head universal machining centre being fully serviced by Express CNC machine tool repairs.  CME FCM 3000

    The ball screw measured 5075mm in length with machining at both ends.  The ball screw was reverse engineered from a sample which was found to be beyond economical repair.  The manufacturing CAD drawings and ball transfer design were performed in house.  The ball nut was manufactured on our 4-axis CNC mill and precision thread ground on our Matrix 69 extended bed internal thread grinder.

    Delivery of the ball screw in a specially made wooden box for safe trasnportation and storage was made in less than 6 weeks from receipt of the sample.

    Express CNC fully stripped and serviced the machine components in preparation for a move to a new foundation.  The machine also had the main column removed in order to repair the saddle.

    Precision ball screw products manufactured in England, reverse engineered from any machine tool make or model - contact us for more information.

  • Kugelmotion have recently engineered and supplied Chiron ballscrews for two Chiron M1250 machine tools.  The Chiron X-axis ballscrews and Y-axis ballscrews were manufactured according to a drawing supplied by our customer.
