Reliance are pleased to announce the supply of a new product range, Steinmeyer miniature ball screws, as part of its catalogue product offering. As the only UK distributor of the product, Reliance unveiled the new range at last week’s Med-Tech Innovations Expo at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
Miniature ball screws with diameters of 16mm and smaller are commonly used for precision positioning in semiconductor, optics, medical instrument and metrology applications, and so are a natural, complementary addition to the catalogue product range.
Steinmeyer are well recognised for their technologies and advanced techniques in the manufacture of ball screws. Using high-quality materials and sophisticated manufacturing procedures they combine innovation, precision, quality, reliability and durability to create a highly precise, uniquely operating ball screw.
For delicate applications requiring the lowest possible friction, Steinmeyer’s new optiSLITE technology can be applied. Through the use of innovative production technologies, the ball screws are optimised with smoother spindle surfaces for superior operation, providing a noticeable improvement in running characteristics, noise reduction and higher energy efficiencies.
As well as being able to purchase the new, high-quality product, customers will also benefit from Reliance’s engineering design experience and knowledge, ensuring they have the right product for their application, with the reassurance it will perform accurately and reliably.
Richard Wade, Reliance’s Product Manager for Catalogue Mechanical Products, comments: “Reliance is delighted to be Steinmeyer’s UK Distributor for their miniature ball screw range. They are a strong brand with excellent manufacturing capabilities offering highly precise, highly technical products. We are proud to be associated with them. The range was very well received at last week’s Med-Tech Show. Visitors to the stand were impressed with the technology and the high-quality manufacture of the product.”
