F.A.Q's

This new feature of the site is provided to help you solve some of the common problems associated with linear motion mechanisms and positioning control. It will be updated periodically.

Question:
I have started having trouble holding size on my machining center, especially when using circular interpolation. The ball screws seem to be running quietly and there are no strange noises when the slides move. Do I need to have the ball screws reconditioned or is it a problem with the control?

Question:
I just bought a turning center at auction and there appears to be a problem with both the "x" and "z" axis ballscrews. They are noisy and there seems to be excessive backlash in both. Can they be reconditioned?

Question:
How can I be sure that the backlash shown on the control's readout is in the ballscrews?

Question:
When I move the "y" axis slide on my machining center close to the limit the servo motor trips out. Is it likely to be the ballscrew or the servo?

Question:
We did some work on the table slide of an older boring mill but two weeks later the ballscrew locked up. One wiper was pushed out and pieces of ball could be seen in the end of the nut. A week after we installed a new ball screw the same thing happened. What is the problem?

Question:
I clean the ballscrew on my machine regularly but the seals on the nut allow small particles to enter. The seals seem to be made of some sort of plastic. Can I replace them to keep the chips out?
