Dynatect’s New West Coast Ball Screw Repair Capability – Faster Service Across More of the Country

TRACY, CA – Dynamic motion and protection company Dynatect today announced their newest ball screw regional repair facility in Tracy, California (near San Francisco).  This new service at an existing facility leverages 30 years of ball screw manufacturing and repair knowledge previously featured only at the Dynatect Michigan location.  The new repair service location comes with the same industry leading sales support, expert technical capability, free evaluation, expedited turnaround, and 1-year warranty.

“We recognize that local presence and experience is essential to trusting the repair of a mission-critical ball screws and maximizing machine uptime,” said Mark Thurman, CEO of Dynatect.  “Leveraging existing equipment and craftsmen allows us to service new customers who previously shipped challenging distances past the Rocky Mountains for reliable quality.”

The California-based service center features a free evaluation of returned ball-screw assembly including a multi-step cleaning, inspection, and quotation.  A Straightening press, lathe, and a diverse stock of precision 52100 steel balls support most repairs; including a reloading process that ensures the assembly has enough pre-load to minimize backlash and dead-band.  The final assembly with new precision 52100 steel balls is inspected and run before return shipping.  More extensive repairs, reverse engineering, and replacement services are also available.  Some services can be expedited, with emergency reloads as fast as 24 hours.

Ball screw repair options are crucial to managing the uptime of machine tools.  When unique designs, large sizes, or new ball screws have long lead-times, reliable repair can ensure mission-critical production machines are online faster.  Machine tool owners often leverage a combination repair, emergency stock, and replenishment – for which Dynatect remains ideally positioned to provide all three services.
