We specialize in ball screw repair. Over time your ball screw and nut can wear out and become loose. This will be the leading cause of noise, vibrations and loss of tolerance with other problems occurring the more you use it.

Precision grinding the raceway (ball groove) to accept a larger diameter ball will restore precision accuracy and repeatability to make your ball screw work like new.

Ross CNC has been in business over 30 years repairing ball screws and CNC machinery for all industries. Our company offers the best warranty in the industry, up to 24 months covering all parts and labor. Delivery time is just 2 to 4 days & we can save you 60% or more from buying a new ball screw.


The plastic ball returns breaking or becoming worn. This will cause noise, backlash or complete failure with all of the balls falling out. We manufacture new ball returns that will outlast plastic resin 3 to 5 times longer.

Even metal return tubes can flare out and get damaged. This usually starts with a noise in one direction. Don’t order a new ball screw and wait 6 weeks for a replacement.

Repair your ball screw with Ross CNC and get back into production in just 3 to 5 days. We have inserts and return tubes for most ball screws in stock.
