A manufacturer of electrical sockets chose Eichenberger Gewinde ballscrews to drive its handling systems and boost production volume up to 2300 parts per hour. For this particular application, the multi-axis handling system required maximum precision under extremely stringent geometric conditions. The Carry E or F ballscrews match the demands of this application exactly, combining speed, precision and as well as minimum space requirements, because the ball return passes through the end caps which are fully integrated in the nut body. The η efficiency of Carry ball screws is greater than 0.9.
