Micro Precision Systems, or MPS, is a division of the FAULHABER Group. MPS was founded over 80 years ago in the development and manufacture of miniature, high-precision ball bearings and ball screw technologies. MPS produces micro-mechanical solutions for a range of applications including the watch industry, medical and orthopaedic instrumentation and defence.
MPS Microsystems is a division of MPS, which specialises in linear bearings and ball screws to deliver unique, high-precision and reliable electromechanical microsystems.
Today MPS continues to take on the toughest challenges by developing complex microsystems of increasingly minute dimensions while constantly fulfilling the technical requirements set out. Standard products consist of precision miniature ball screws, precision linear bearings, unhoused linear bearings, precision balls to 0.2 millimetres (mm) and four-point contact micro bearings.
Submicron tolerances are achieved with grade three ball production. MPS relies on all these core competences as it strives to provide industrialised solutions for customers who require microsystems that include linear or rotating movement.

Customised solutions realised to date are in the advanced technology fields of aerospace, implantable medical implantable, optical devices, semiconductors, defence and micro-robotics.
MPS Microsystems offers miniature, high-precision linear systems with unmatched efficiency. The range includes precision ball screws, linear bearings, ball bushings and balls, each of which can be configured to meet each customer’s unique specification.
MPS Microsystems offers a complete range of high precision, high performance ball screws for positioning less than five micrometres (µm). These screws ensure smooth and uniform movement resulting from the high precision of their thread.
