Universal screws SX / BX

SX/BX universal screws
The SKF range of universal ball screws produced with precision rolling technology, offers compact, highly efficient driving solutions. The nut design incorporates a threaded nose for easy integration into any assembly. Optional dedicated flanges can be attached to the threaded nut nose, if that type of assembly is more favourable to the application integration. Customized solutions are available.
Offering similar insert recirculation and nut design, the SX / BX range is the “big brother” of the SD / BD range.
