Screw drives are used in a diverse range of applications in the field of automotive engineering as linear motion is often the basis for smooth rolling, sliding and running. Whether truck couplings, automatic vehicle door systems for rail and commercial vehicles, aircraft seats or towed sonar for detecting oil deposits under the ocean, weight is an increasingly important factor in addition to precision, robustness and load capacity. Lighter, more resilient materials have become indispensable in vehicle engineering. Eichenberger lightweight aluminium screw drives have big advantages for your design - even for the simplest mechanical drive components.
Water microphones pulled by ships detect oil deposits under the sea. Eichenberger developed a ballscrew drive with a special nut and cardan connection to regulate rope fanning and ensure the perfect towing of ropes up to 1000 meters long.
Would you like smoother motion? Your ideas are examined in the Basic Check and the most appropriate solution is decided together. If you already have some drawings, these are used as a starting point. You will receive a concrete answer to your inquiry within just 1 to 2 days, including details about feasibility, price and delivery date.
Your application can be even more competitive with our input. We check all important factors to identify potential to optimise the linear motion of your product – economic factors, dynamics, installation space, efficiency, etc. In many cases, replacing the conventional drive solution with innovative technology takes performance to a whole new level.
You have an idea but no solution yet? Contact us and feel inspired. Together, we develop THE screw drive solution for your specific requirements and tailor-make it - in the shortest possible time. A ballscrew or lead screw may be the perfect solution for an application even though this was not previously considered. We enjoy surprising with our inspiring and innovated ideas.
Our products are adapted by individual design or special manufacturing processes to suit your application and we make the impossible possible. Eichenberger screw drives therefore offer more than comparable products in terms of dimension or quality - and more than expected. Bring your innovations to the forefront of the market.
