Feed Axes


Since 2013, the Feed Axes Working Group has been working together with 14 component and machine tool manufacturers on current issues in the field of feed axle components. At present, the focus is on reliability and availability. Against this background, investigations are being carried out on sealing and wiper systems for ball screws; a better understanding and further development of the service life theory for ball screws is being worked on and strategies for condition monitoring of linear guides are being developed and tested.
