Dynatect Introduces Ball Screw Cost Savings Calculator

Dynatect LSI has introduced a new savings calculator to evaluate a repair program and replacement stock strategy for precision ground ball screws (PGBS).

The current lead times (average 16-20 weeks, and as high as 50) for PGBS is driving plant managers to re-evaluate procurement options, including repair and maintaining a stock of PGBS.

  • Ball screw repair: 30-60% of used PGBS can be refurbished to new condition with an included warranty
  • The cost of those repairs is typically just 50-60% the cost of new PGBS
  • There is a 25% net savings across a population of annual PGBS
