Rapid Prototyping for Lead Screw and Ball Screw Assemblies
Thomson BSA can help you bring your new device to market rapidly. Our customers need fast, quality prototypes for lead screw or ball screw designs, and we cut the industry average time by better than half – instead of four to eight weeks for custom prototypes. We can complete most lead screw and ball screw prototypes within two weeks. For more standard designs, it can take as little as a day.
We can provide modified or fully custom lead screw or ball screw prototypes so efficiently because Thomson BSA uses lean manufacturing principles so our factory can adapt easily to alternate sizes and thread profiles. We have an experienced engineering team who can help from design to implementation:
Adaptable, Lean Manufacturing Processes
Thomson BSA practices one-piece flow manufacturing, so every lead screw and ball screw is completed individually, meaning we can easily do single-screw prototypes. We also use a rolling process to form every lead screw and many series of ball screw. This manufacturing concept means that it only takes slightly longer than the actual fabrication time to setup and process your prototypes.
Experienced Engineering Staff
Our engineering staff can take any drawing and create a ball screw or lead screw prototype. For a modified standard ball screw or lead screw design, the turnaround time can be as short as the next day, with average times at about four days. Even completely custom ball screw and lead screw prototypes can generally be completed within two weeks, compared to an average of eight weeks throughout the industry.
