NSK's new series of ball screws, with freely combined nut and shaft, make stocking and purchasing high-quality ball screws much easier for both dealers and end-users.


Previously, ball screws were designed specifically to customers requirements and adapted to task. Manufacturers would then supply individual assemblies that are factory matched. Now, individually matched nut-shaft combinations aren't required, and both can be interchanged using the principle of random matching.

Users now have the advantage that the required ball screw can be ordered from stock and cut to a required length, in-house or by an authorised NSK dealer. This provides greater flexibility and availability of ball screws of individual dimensions.

Available in accuracy class 7, the new series comes in shaft diameters of 15 to 32mm, with pitches to 5 to 20mm. Meeting the requirements of DIN 69051 (ISO 3408), they are ideal for applications that use pick-and-place systems, automated transfer units, handling and internal transport.
