Hi,

I'm looking for some advice with Ball screws.
Other than the price is there really much difference between Hiwin and Zapp Automation?

Looking at Zapps website they have great reviews, I just wondered if anyone on here has used either of them or has some advice.

Cheers,

Darren.

Zap sell Gten ballscrew. Hiwin and Gten ballscrews are about the same quality.
Ive used a few and i cant fault them.
Also much better than the Chinese ballscrews that i have also used.

BST, do you have the contact details for them please?
I'd rather use a company that come recommended. [emoji106]
