Precision rolled ball screws, cylindrical flange SN / BN / PN

Precision rolled ball screws SN / BN / PN
The SKF range of ball screws with cylindrical flange nut design, based on precision rolling technology, offers compact, highly efficient driving solutions. With precision grinding of the nut outside diameter, flange face and nut thread, this design fits most positioning applications. If further positioning accuracy is required, SKF offers this range with backlash elimination or with preload.
This range of ball screws offers excellent value and is a competitive alternative to ground ball screws. In addition, it presents interchange with DIN nut designs in most applications and at a lower cost.
