Vehicle engineering

Lighten your mechanical drive components - with Eichenberger screw drives

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.

Application examples

All aboard! Aluminium door systems and "Speedy" leadscrews can save up to 35 kg weight per door, allowing two more passengers into the bus. Lower weight also reduces fuel consumption and thus CO2 emissions.
Centerpiece door drive Cold-formed aluminium thread drives with very specialised thread forms have significant advantages in automatic vehicle door systems: aluminium is light weight, has a constant stability and high load capacity.
Well changed Fully automatic truck transmissions demand the utmost from the clutch. A robust Eichenberger spindle enables the clutch actuator to master the enormous power easily and dynamically.
Towed sonar on the high seas

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.

Black gold With boreholes kilometres deep, extreme temperatures and high pressure, oil extraction needs extremely reliable drilling equipment which operates quickly and effectively. The robust, extremely resilient type Carry ballscrew drive with tubular steel ball return guarantees the high performance demands in the steering system of high-tech drilling arms.
Shuttle service into space The new Space Glider will be able to dock safely with the ISS space station from 2020 thanks to three ingenious ball screws. Reliability, robustness and load capacity were just some of the key selection criteria for meeting the challenges in space.
Have a good flight The correct position of an aircraft seat is crucial for travel comfort and relaxation. The backrest, seat and foot sections can be adjusted smoothly and with millimeter precision thanks to Eichenberger ballscrews.
