Screw drives in electrical engineering - achieve higher energy efficiency and travel speed with electromechanical drives

Electromechanical drives have a number of advantages in comparison to hydraulic drives: significantly better energy efficiency, high positioning accuracy, easier to control and controlled travel profiles. Therefore, electromechanical devices have a clear place in the future of industrial automation, robotics and medical technology – and open up enormous potential for optimisation for you as a manufacturer. Development opportunities never previously thought of are now possible in countless industrial and research applications for semiconductors, photovoltaic systems, vacuum valves and much more. Electronics and mechanics work hand in hand – in an electromechanical drive the rotary motion of the motor is converted into longitudinal motion by an Eichenberger thread drive. Contact us to be inspired by our innovative skills and find your perfect drive solution.

Application examples

Servo-presses: Automated assembly processes A key component of servo presses are electrically driven, cold-rolled ballscrews. They convert the rotary motion of the motor into a linear motion of the piston rod. Standard ballscrews as well as tailor-made products are a core competence of Eichenberger.
Electrical devices A powerful, fast and precise conversion of rotary motion into linear motion is required in electrical devices. Eichenberger ballscrews are robust and reliable - and have an almost unlimited service-life. They are also high precision, extremely adaptable and can be miniaturised.
Hose connector BioWelder TC The portable, programmable hose connector enables fast, fully automatic connection of thermoplastic hoses in a sterile welding process. The two Eichenberger ballscrews "Carry ZYI" meet all the specifications required to give this outstanding welding machine absolutely reliable, super-efficient and high precision motion.
Safety for the power grid

Circuit breakers are essential safety features of a power grid, switching the entire output of a power plant on and off, and controlling voltages of up to 1500 kV. Cold-rolled ballscrews, such as those from Eichenberger, are an integral part of this vital key functional responsibility.
