We are the the largest stockist of Swiss precision Eichenberger Gewinde ballscrews outside of Switzerland. Eichenberger ballscrews are a highly efficient way of converting rotary to linear motion. This is due to the ballscrews high reliability, precision and efficiency compared to more traditional power transmission components such as belt or chain drives (which we also distribute). Eichenberger Ballscrews are more efficient and have a longer life span than acme or trapezoidal threads. The main reason behind a ballscrews efficiency is the presence of ball bearings that are housed within the nut. The bearings run on the cold-rolled thread, greatly reducing the amount of friction between the screw and nut themselves. The design of the nut cleverly allows the ball bearings to re-circulate, resulting in a longer and more predictable lifetime.
Benefits of Eichenberger Ball screws
Eichenberger no-wear ballscrew drives, ideal for moving heavy loads with low energy consumption. Cold-formed screws that stand out for their robustness, precision, strength, efficiency and smooth running. This form allows for extreme pitches, giving unprecedented travel speeds.
The nuts are fitted with various ball returns, fully integrated into the nut body. The optimum system for your drive solution is selected on the basis of dimensions, temperature, travel speed, load and application range.
We offer off-the-shelf or bespoke custom nuts to suit any application.
Special Nut Designs and End Machining of Eichenberger Balls Screws
Moore International can offer a range of machining facilities in the UK or at the factory in Switzerland, including softening the ball screws for customers who want to machine them in-house themselves. Special or custom nuts can also be made from customer drawings the provide specified diameters and pitches and in minimum quantities of only 250.
