Restore a damaged, inefficient ballscrew with leading ballscrew repair by K+S Services. Our dedicated team works with a wide range of brands and types to provide industry-leading repair services. Find out more about this essential repair process and how you can keep your equipment operating at peak efficiency.
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. Inspect this component to look for these typical signs that it 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, this component 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 component and repair other components. Preventative maintenance can increase the lifespan of your equipment and allows you to plan ahead, schedule servicing and enjoy the efficient operation of your key equipment.
Our ISO-Certified Repair Process
At K+S Services, we proudly repair a wide range of Acme, Rolled Thread and Precision Ground assemblies from many manufacturers. A repair service can offer you savings of 50% of the cost of replacement. Here is the comprehensive ISO repair process we follow for all of our repairs:
- Receive and evaluate
- Quote and failure analysis report
- Await approval
- Initiate repair process
- Quality control testing
- Ship restored component
Once we safely receive your damaged ballscrew, our skilled technicians evaluate the cause of failure. This process occurs before we provide an accurate quote and FAR, or Failure Analysis Report. You can use this report to learn more about the cause of the ballscrew or failure and keep track of the repair process.
After you approve of our recommended repair procedure, we start our comprehensive ballscrew repair and conditioning services. Our repair order tracking system to communicate with you during every step of the repair service.
Comprehensive repairs include cleaning, parts replacement and reverse engineering to identify the cause of the inefficiency. After our team completes the repair process, a full report is issued to discuss the necessary repairs, replacement parts used and complete resting. Quality control services help us ensure your ballscrew operates efficiently.
Our extensive inventory expedites your repair services and ensures your ballscrew is replaced with minimal downtime. We have over 40,000 remanufactured parts and a full inventory of over 122,000 unique part numbers. Our goal is to offer the exact replacement part you need for any damage to any ballscrew.
Other repair services increase the timeline of repairs by waiting for back-order parts. If you’re working with an obsolete or specialized component, a lack of a fully stocked inventory can delay your repair project. That’s why we take pride in our award-winning remanufactured parts program. We assist you in every way to accelerate the repair timeline and keep your equipment operating efficiently.
Every remanufactured part from our inventory is tested in a closed-loop to ensure efficient operation. We stand by every component and repair service we offer and back all remanufactured components with a one year warranty.
