Automation

Ball screws and leadscrews drive maximum performance automation

Screw drives are a significant element of automation. Effective automation requires highly precise, fast and resilient motion - often in the smallest of spaces. Eichenberger screws are currently used in every imaginable area of automation, and technological development is constantly presenting new challenges for linear drive technology. Our products are adapted to meet your specific requirements and application by using special designs or manufacturing processes - making the impossible possible. Your innovations are put at the forefront of the market with our products.

Examples of applications

Pick-and-place applications The “Carry” helix ball drive with end-cap ball return system is the heart of the spindle mechanism which enables very fast mechanical retooling. Exceptional travel speeds with low drive power and low self-heating are key here - power, speed and precision.
Science Fiction becomes reality The durable universal device carries out serial examinations and analyses automatically, often over months. Displacement in the Z-axis, drawing up the liquid, control of the guide axis: Three standard "Speedy" screw drives manage and control the sampling procedures - with unprecedented traversing speeds and the highest precision.
Star gazer "Magic" 17 metres in diameter, 1000 aluminium mirror segments, 2000 ballscrews and 240 m2 mirror surface, the world's largest telescope of its kind can focus on any point in the sky in just 20 seconds. Each mirror plate aligns itself to a pre-set laser point - driven by two "Carry" 12 x 2 ball screws.
