During the late 70's and early 80's there was a tremendous increase in the sale of CNC controlled machine tools and the development of high-tech pharmaceutical and medical equipment. It seemed that whatever the industry, machinery was taking advantage of advances and cost reduction in computer controlled equipment. Although the cost of ever increasingly sophisticated equipment was falling, the cost of replacement parts was on the rise and one of the high ticket items machine owners were faced with replacing was the ball screw.
At the time, service technicians were becoming increasingly aware of the demand for a reconditioned product but it was a relatively new field without the ease of supply of the high quality and odd sized balls necessary to repair a ball screw. At the time, rebuilding ballscrews was not a full time job but eventually the task progressed from simple re-balling to full blown reconditioning.
With the advent of the Internet, a whole new market blossomed, with newcomers beginning to compete for business. It was a blessing for companies like Express Ball Screw Repair who had years of experience to be forced to fine tune the rebuilding process, develop new and more cost effective procedures.
Even though reconditioning a ballscrew has progressed tremendously in two decades, the task still requires old fashioned skill and craftsmanship to do it well. Precision Ball Screw Repair, now a part of the original company is helping to improve the quality and cost effectiveness still further.
