Miniature Ball Screws
Miniature ball screws from 3 mm to 16 mm are used for precise positioning, mainly in the areas of semiconductor technology, optics, medical devices and metrology.
Precision Ball Screws
Precision large ball screws from 16 to 125 mm are not only used in engineering. The range of applications for large ball screws is as versatile as our product portfolio.
Ultra Thrust Ball Screws
Wherever high loads are involved, such as pressing, cutting, straightening, or injection molding, we can replace hydraulics. Ball screws offer an electro-mechanical solution that is clean, efficient, and powerful.
Rotating nuts are designed for mounting an axial bearing with thread for the clamping nut. This construction allows very high speeds.
Cooled Ball Screws
We know the system of ball screw nut and spindle and understand exactly how efficient cooling must be designed.
Precision Lead Screws
Lead screws are characterized through repeatability, their non-slip properties, high resolution and space-optimized dimensions.
Differential Roller Screws
Differential roller screws are characterized by high power transmission, a very compact design and high efficiency.
Rolled Ball Screws
We manufacture ball screws through different product processes for different applications.
