Ball screws

Low-friction solution for hand tools

Owners of vineyards and orchards are very particular about the pruning tools used in their plantations. Pruning tools must be light, ergonomic and easy to handle, but also powerful with low power consumption. Original equipment manufacturers have their own requirements to consider, including reliability and low maintenance.


With the low-friction ball screw, SKF offers a solution that meets the needs of equipment operators, as well as manufacturers. The ball screw has an internal preload set for optimum rigidity and efficiency. Low friction and a lubricated nut are features that provide the manufacturers advantages such as low energy consumption, minimum maintenance, and increased reliability. End-users get a powerful, but yet lightweight tool that is easy to handle.
