Have you considered using rollerscrews?

If you have an application that requires the transfer of force from rotary to linear motion (or vice versa), you may have considered using a leadscrew or a ballscrew, but have you thought about using a rollerscrew? At Moore International we’re in the unusual position of being able to give unbiased advice on this subject as we’re the UK distributor for Eichenberger ballscrews and leadscrews and we’re a key UK distributor for Rollvis rollerscrews. These are both very well-established Swiss companies with excellent track records for manufacturing products of the highest quality.

You may know that a ballscrew moves heavier loads than a leadscrew because a ballscrew nut contains recirculating balls that increase the surface contact between screw and nut. Well, the technology of a rollerscrew builds on this principle, but the contact between screw and nut is even greater with a rollerscrew as its nut contains a set of rollers that orbit the shaft – hence why they’re often termed ‘satellite rollerscrews’.

The superior contact area within the nut of a rollerscrew enables a rollerscrew to transmit considerably heavier loads than a ballscrew. A rollerscrew also requires less maintenance and has a longer life expectancy than a ballscrew.

The next time you’re designing a machine that requires high dynamic load capacity, consider whether you need a ballscrew or a rollerscrew. Either way, we’d be happy to help, and we can draw upon years of expertise from one of our trusted Swiss partners. Just give us a call on (01202) 623393 or email us at [email protected]

Did you know, not only do we supply ballscrews from the likes of Eichenberger, Hiwin and Limon,  we also can offer THK Rolled Ballscrews..

We are delighted to be able to offer a wide range - thank you to Irish Manufacturing and THK Japanese Rolled Ballscrews made in Ireland.

 If you require end-machining of your ballscrew, ask our team for a quote now on your rolled or precision ground ball screws in various brands!  

 Many sizes are available in stock which can then be machined on our Hwacheon Driven Tool lathes.

Swmas Report For Moore International:

Since Moore International Ltd was first established in 1997, it has gone from strength to strength. By 1998, this small, family-run manufacturing company was appointed sole UK distributors for Swiss-made rolled ball screws and lead screws, and began CNC machining parts in 2006. Fast forward to 2022 and the business now has 17 staff, 14 CNC machines…and is still growing! 


From supplying stock products direct from its large premises in Poole, to manufacturing bespoke parts that meet customers’ specific requirements, this business is committed to keeping up with the latest technology and market trends. As a result, it is always fully equipped to cater for a wide variety of needs from a growing (and diverse) customer base.


Current Challenges…

Like many businesses across the UK, Moore International have recently seen costs increase across all products, which, alongside longer delivery timescales, is causing challenges. A shortage of skilled engineers is also contributing to current struggles and making it harder to meet ever growing customer demand.


Despite these difficulties, Moore International is focusing on the factors that are within their control and remain confident about their future growth prospects.


In line with its innovative approach to business development, this company is keen to find ways of extending its reach to new consumers, as well as re-engaging past customers. The team are adapting to changing times by stepping up their social media presence and have already seen the benefits associated with this new form of lead generation.

Moore International also plans to take proactive steps to reduce energy consumption and ensure it can meet the government’s 2050 net zero target. The business is currently looking into a variety of options (such as solar panels and roof insulation) to help lower its carbon footprint, whilst keeping monthly energy bills to a minimum.

PPMA Show 2021

Stand and exhibition


We were located in H16. Not a bad location although most visitors would have had the chance to walk through all of the aisles and rows easily in the one day.


There were around 350 exhibitors and an estimated 8,000 visitors. In addition, there were other exhibitions on at the same time in the NEC which may well hold some interest for Moore International.


The stand included exhibits from Eichenberger, Schneeberger, Zimmer and other associated products including couplings, bearings, ball transfer units and support bearings.


The stand was manned by Mark Moore, James Davies and Malcolm Sheryn.

Mark Moore CEO was also interviewed and filmed, here’s what he had to say:


Following the current situation worldwide with Coronavirus, we wanted to update you on the situation here at Moore International.

For the time being, we are back to normal and operating better than ever before. Although we have our full team back in office we are making sure to take precautions regarding Covid-19. Temperature and covid tests are compulsary for our staff and visitors to enable us to be as safe as possible while still working. Unlike some businesses we are still happy to deal with face to face customer visits, however we are making sure to include all of the possible forms of PPE and distancing that we can!

We appreciate that the last couple of years have been difficult and uncertain for us all, and our first priority has to be for the wellbeing of our staff, their families and our customers. We will endeavour to maintain the high standard of service that we have provided over the years, but we ask for your understanding if we do fall a little short during this time.

We wish you all the best of health and look forward to hearing from you soon.

We're on the road in October

While looking after customers' orders this summer we've got one eye on preparations for two exciting exhibitions this October. First we're at PPMA Total at the NEC from 1st to 3rd October and then we're at Robotics and Automation at the Ricoh Arena on 29th and 30th October.

PPMA Total is the UK's biggest gathering of companies involved in processing and packaging machinery, but don't miss out - it's only held every 3 years! It's called 'Total' because it combines PPMA (Processing and Packaging Machinery Association), Pakex (Packaging) and Interphex (pharmaceuticals). You'll find us at Stand G142 in Hall 5 of the NEC, so please drop by - you'll receive a warm welcome and advice on how you can use our ballscrews, leadscrews and linear products in your application.

You'll receive the same warm welcome and expert advice if you see us at the Robotics and Automation exhibition at the Ricoh Arena at the end of October. When you're not having a friendly and informative chat with us, you'll be able to marvel at the latest developments in robot technology and gain an insight into inventions we'll enjoy in the near future.

Keeping pace with demand - great write-up in Machinery Market
