Concrete application examples

Highly precise and highly rigid ball screws and caged roller as well as caged ball linear guides for use in lathes and milling machines.

Clean separation of cooling circuits by drip-free coupling systems.

In spark erosion machines the liquid handling of the dielectric takes place via solenoid and seat valves, and heat exchangers perform cooling tasks.

Use of robotics for loading and unloading, tool changer and inspection, IP 67 protection also permits installation in the machine directly.

Rotary joints both for dry running and for the secure, reliable feeding of coolant through the electric spindle.
