Burlington, MA — Steinmeyer, Inc. announced a significant innovation to its standard line of wipers for precision ball screws. Steinmeyer offers the Combination Wiper, consisting of a friction type finger wiper in front of a felt wiper. The dual wipers, plastic plus felt, provide superior sealing. And because the felt is saturated with oil, it’s really an optimum low maintenance solution for machine designers – dual wipers provide both improved sealing and constant lubrication.The new and improved Combination Wiper features a redesign of the wiper housing that effectively keeps the felt wiper from shifting or rotating assuring the prevention of contaminants from entering the ball nut while simultaneously lubricating the ball screw.
These new and improved Combination Wipers are exclusively for Steinmeyer ball screws and are available in diameters from 12-125 mm.
