BALL SCREW MANUFACTURER

Shuton is a leading company in the design and manufacture of high performance ball screws located in the Basque Country, central focus and leader of the machine tool industry in the north of Spain.

Shuton has been a part of the Nadella Group since 2020, and with more than 45 years of experience in the development and manufacture of high precision ball screws, our presence in the most advanced machine construction markets, and our close relationship with leading manufacturers facilitates the optimization of our products in order to offer the most efficient results for the most demanding applications.

Shuton has its own Technology Centre and collaborates with selected Technological centres. Its Engineering Service offers comprehensive advice for the selection of the precision ball screw and optimal use for each application, studying the different solutions and detecting new developments needs that may arise.

SHUTON designs and manufactures precision ball screws for the sectors of machine tools, injection moulding, presses and other heavy load applications, automation solutions, actuators, semiconductors, elevation systems, etc.

We are an active and experienced team, of innovative mentality and great capacity for growth and improvement, committed to offer the most innovative and appropriate products and services that best suit the needs of our customers.

Excellence is our key principle that leads us to be present today and in the future as key collaborators and best partners of our customers.

OUR VALUES

01 HIGH PERFORMANCE

Shuton main objective is to offer our customer the ball screw that will offer the best performance. Shuton combines three key aspects for this.

The first is the knowledge of the requirements of the most demanding applications of our customers, being present in the most advanced machine constructions markets, keeping a close collaboration with our customers and carrying a continuous research of the necessities that may arise. Among others we focus on getting a higher performance, higher dynamics, higher rigidity, higher durability, less maintenance requirement and increased uptime.

The second is a strong research and development program, focused in the optimization of Shuton balls crew technologies, selection of materials and its thermal treatment, improvement of manufacturing processes and study and optimization of all other aspects that may improve the performance of the ball screw. SHUTON has developed different technologies adapted to application areas: COMPLEX for demanding, high-precision machine tool applications, HIGH LOADS for injection moulding, presses and other heavy load applications, PRIME for precise positioning and average dynamics demand machine tool applications and ATR for transport applications.

The third aspect is the detailed design of each ball screw for each application. Shuton Engineering service analyses every aspect of the application, determining the best option at the most appropriate conditions, thus providing to the best performance of the ball screw. SHUTON Engineering service has carried out several Technical studies over the years carefully adapting SHUTON ball screws to customer applications.

 

02 RELIABILITY

The high performance offered by SHUTON products has its guarantee of reliability.

SHUTON has its own Technological Centre and works in close collaboration with leading external Technological Centres and Universities. SHUTON leads several innovation projects and has various test units for simulating real cycles and measuring of temperatures, noise, the effect of misalignments, vibrations, dirtiness, etc. , getting homologation of the new developments.

The components of the precision ball screw are studied with great care, selecting the best materials (reducing residual stresses), thermal treatments (improving the treatment layer) and the use of components such as balls, wipers, MIM deflectors, etc. of the highest quality.

The continuous update and improvement of the manufacturing and control systems, together with the process traceability and the verification of each ball screw, guarantee the supply of the precision ball screws in the most demanding standards.

"Productivity for longer" is one of our leit motifs, which is why we offer our clients advice both for optimal ball screw selection and the best way to use it, with the aim of ensuring the best behaviour of the precision ball screw during its life.

 

03 APPLIED ENGINEERING

Our innovative mentality and the continuous search to improve results and respond to new needs have led us to develop new technologies that make SHUTON precision ball screws the most competitive. This is how SHUTON precision ball screw range was defined.

- SHUTON COMPLEXHigh precision ball screws for high dynamics machine tools with efficient rigidity requirements and extreme duty cycles. Oriented to improve machining times in productively demanding sectors such as automotive, aeronautics, die mold processing machines,etc

- SHUTON PRIME Fine-lead high precision ball screws for average speed applications, such as grinding machines and EDM machines that ensure smooth rotation in short strokes.

- SHUTON HIGH LOADS High dynamics and high load ball screws for injection molding machines, presses and other heavy duty applications operated by electric servo drive in extreme conditions.

- SHUTON ATR High efficiency precision ball screws for pick and place applications, factory automation, actuators and other transport applications.

In addition to these product ranges, SHUTON develops specific solutions adapted to the needs of our customers, such as double start ball screws, nuts with cooling systems, triple effect wipers, rotary nut systems, specific profiles, and special nut designs among others.

One of the projects in development at the moment is the Monitoring 4.0, the intelligent ball screw iBALL SCREW, which allows us to anticipate the lack of lubrication, vibrations or an increase in temperature that would hamper the proper use of the ball screw. In this way, we help make maintenance for our customers to be easier and more predictive.

SHUTON “Engineering Service", which has 3-dimensional drawing systems, CAM programming, and different calculation programs, offers its customers comprehensive advice for the selection of the precision ball screw and optimal use for each application, studying the different solutions and detecting new developments needs that may arise.

 

04 HIGH RESPONSE CAPACITY

One of key principles of Shuton is to become the "Best Partner" of our customers. We work to respond to the needs that our customers may have in all aspects of engineering, supply and support.

Our applied engineering department provides the necessary knowledge both at technical level and at product level, to offer the best solution adapted to customer needs.

Latest generation machines and continuous investment in new equipment allow us to offer an agile and flexible response, offering the best product in the best term, with the possibility of defining adapted supply plans.

Our extensive commercial network has specialized personnel in the main markets around the world, offering a close and personalized service to our customers. Its extensive technical and market knowledge allows us to detect the needs of our customers and offer the appropriate solutions for each case.
