Ball Nut X2 Preload Mill

May 11 2018 Higher preload also correlates with higher nut rigidity which improves the rigidity of the complete screw because the ball nut is only one component in the ball screw assembly and its rigidity is relatively high compared to the other components increasing the preload from 3 percent to 5 percent for example has a minimal effect on the rigidity of the assembly
