Getting the knack: Screw drives

If initially "round" and then "linear" movement is needed, in most cases ball screw drives or trapezoid screw drives are required in modern style machine and plant engineering industries. The extensive DRECKSHAGE line is intended to offer the design engineer a suitable screw drive for practically every movement task.

We would recommend the trapezoid screw drives as a cost saving construction element for robust applications or the ball screw drive for highest requirements as regards precision and dynamics.

We are driven by precision

Versatile: We supply spindles in many diameters and various pitches for practically any movement task.

Economic: High speeds; more output and less maintenance effort allows the more efficient use of the machines when balls screws are used.

Fast: High moving speeds of the ball screws allow shorter cycle times.

Precise: Our ball screws meet the highest precision and speed requirements.

Robust: Our inexpensive trapezoidal screws are suitable especially for robust operations.

Individual: Each spindle is available with customised end processing.
