Bedford, MA, December 6, 2004 -- Steinmeyer, Inc. announced the recent addition of two new sizes to its standard line of miniature precision screws – 6 and 10 millimeter diameters. These ball screws are available with the following pitches:• 6 x 1,25 mm• 6 x 1,27 mm (0,05 inch)• 6 x 2 mm• 6 x 3 mm• 10 x 2 mm• 10 x 4 mm• 10 x 6 mmSteinmeyer’s line of miniature screws now includes 7 diameters from an incredibly tiny 3 mm up to 16 mm. Other standard diameters are 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12 millimeters. All screws are equipped with ground ball nuts and available with or without preload. By using Steinmeyer’s internal ball deflector return system instead of external tubes, the nuts offer smooth low noise operation in a compact size. The screws are manufactured from standard tool steel, hardened and then precision ground to meet ISO tolerances from T0 to T5. Stainless steel material is also available as an option. And, just as for all large Steinmeyer ball screws, miniature screws are available in custom lengths with journals machined to a control drawing. Applications for miniature ball screws include semiconductor production machines, inspection equipment, microscope stages, fiber-optic assembly mechanisms, medical devices, miniature robotics, and analytical equipment.For further information on miniature ball screws from Steinmeyer call 1-800 -297 -6403 or visit
