Signs You Need Repairs
A ballscrew can become worn out over time. There are a number of issues that can occur as this essential component becomes compromised. These are the typical signs that your ballscrew needs servicing:
- Pitted exterior
- Signs of corrosion
- Heat discoloration
- Wobbling, chattering or growling sounds
These signs point to alignment, lubrication or deterioration issues. Just like any moving part, ballscrew components requires proper lubrication to avoid grinding. A grinding ballscrew not only reduces the efficiency of your equipment but also increases the risk of sudden failure.
Don’t wait until your ballscrew fails. A catastrophic failure can affect other components and increase the cost and timeline of your repair service. Instead of a cost-effective repair, you may need to fully replace this your ballscrew and repair other components along with it. Preventative maintenance can increase the lifespan of your equipment, allows you to plan ahead, schedule servicing and enjoy the efficient operation of your key equipment.
