Machining of Ball Screw
and Adjusting Nut
A Tennessee manufacturer of metal stamping equipment contracted Columbia Machine Works for the fabrication of an aluminum bronze adjusting gear. They were contracted for their reputation of being a trusted provider of highly accurate CNC machining services, and for their ability to machine complex, tight tolerance components with short lead times.
The customer specification called out the use of 3" thick aluminum bronze, requiring precision turning, keyway slotting, and gear cutting, as well as deburring and polishing. The finished gear featured dimensions of 12" in diameter, a bore of 7", and a height of 2-¾", all to tolerances of ±.001". This project was a one off that was produced in just one week. Columbia Machine Works backs up quality machining with a robust quality and inspection program that guarantee optimal results.
