Steinmeyer Inc. announced a new addition to its extensive line
of precision ball screws - a 28 mm diameter screw with 12 mm pitch. This new 28
mm diameter product was designed as a size compatible with the JIS standard. The ball screw is supplied with choice of two nut styles:
single nut with flange series 1416; or
double nut with flange series 1516. The ball nut is normally provided preloaded for zero backlash. The screw shaft is precision
ground and offered in accuracy grades T0 to T5. Threaded length, journal
details and overall length are per customer specification.
Industrial workplaces are governed by OSHA rules, but this isn’t to say that rules are always followed. While injuries happen on production floors for a variety of reasons, of the top 10 OSHA rules that are most often ignored in industrial settings, two directly involve machine design: lockout/tagout procedures (LO/TO) and machine guarding.
