Recently, many customers have come to SCREWTECH to buy ball screw support unit, but they are not aware that the support unit also has different precision. Hope this article can give you a good explanation.
Ball screw support unit has widely application, such as CNC machine tools, semiconductor equipment, automation equipment, medical equipment, petroleum machinery, precision mesuring instruments, mechanical arm, laboratory equipment, aerospace, printing machinery, pharmaceuical packaging machinery,enery enterprises, beverage machinery, food machinery, SCARA robot and other fields.
Support unit C3, C5, C7 requires different precision level. The fixed-end support unit uses 30° or 40° angular contact bearing, and the supported-end unit uses a deep-groove bearing.
C3 fixed end supporting unit uses a P5 bearing and DF type bearing assembly. There is a preload between two bearings to avoid ball screw movement and backlash from the machine. The C3 fixed and support end support unit keeps the shaft and support at good turning accuracy after assembly, due to the precise geometric tolerances between the reference surface and the bearing
C5 support unit is also equipped with P5 bearings and adopts DF type bearing assembly. There is a pre-load between the two bearings to avoid ball screw movement and rebound from the machine
C7 support unit provides P0 bearings, which may or may not be preloaded between the two bearings, which can cause varying backlash values per unit of support, but due to the type of DF bearing assembly, it can support the axial force of the shaft and avoid large Executed when the axis of motion is selected.
Here we share the different tolerances from standard side to the center of different support unit.

Q：What is trapezoidal screw?A：Trapezoidal screw is a kind of lead screw. It is a trapezoidal screw thread. Generall, a 30-degree trapezoidal screw means that the angle of the thread section extension is 30 degrees. Trapezoidal screws are divided into left-handed, right-handed and bi-directional-handRead More
What are the advantages of linear modules? The linear module is an automatic transmission element, which uses timing belt or ball screw to drive the slider to move. It is usually composed of timing belt, ball screw, direct moving die, aluminum alloy profiles, ball screw bracket, coupling, motor, PhoRead More
We all know that linear guides are now an important part of mechanical equipment. Be careful when using linear guides. Many factors will affect the guides and make them fail during operation! Today I will introduce you to the influence of temperature on linear guides! The influence of temperature oRead More
The relationship between the pre-pressure of the ball screw and the load of the screw is mainly used for gap adjustment. If high precision is required, the pre-pressure should be increased accordingly, but it should not be too large, otherwise it will cause high temperature and reduced efficiency.Read More
What is the ball screw drive torque? How should this torque be calculated? The torque of the mechanical components is called the driving torque of the ball screw. The ball screw will produce a certain degree of torsional deformation under the action of torque. Torque is the basic load form of transmRead More
Features of Rotating SeriesZero clearance in spline rotation direction/high positioning accuracyThe contact angle between the nut and the steel ball is 40°, and the bearing DB type (back-to-back combination) design is adopted. Due to the wide span between the effective centers of the bead groove, thRead More
