Real-time Condition Monitoring of Ball Screws

Steinmeyer is developing the world’s first system for real-time condition monitoring of ball screws. Called Guard Plus™, this technology measures the strain inside the ball nut in real-time to indicate loss of preload.

Preload monitoring has been talked about for years as a means to detect ball screw wear. Such data allows the scheduling of preventative maintenance, thereby reducing unplanned downtime of machines. Guard Plus finally achieves this important milestone in machine maintenance!

A prototype system will be on display at Steinmeyer booth 134154 at IMTS 2018. Please add us to your IMTS MyShow Planner and come by to speak to our engineers.
