Linear systems

Linear systems are the basis for executing linear movements. On the one hand, these are linear guides that support a linear motion, on the other hand linear actuators and screw jacks that actively move a spindle or a push rod.


Linear actuators

Linear actuators convert a rotary motion into a linear motion. Technische Antriebselemente distinguishes between linear actuators with push rod and actuators with open spindle. Both variants offer special advantages. While the stroke of an open spindle is almost unlimited, the push rod offers a more compact installation space in relation, since the push rod disappears completely in the linear actuator.  The linear actuators from Technische Antriebselemente can move loads of up to 18 kN as a standard and are therefore suitable even for powerful applications.

Force up to 6 kN

Force up to 18 kN

Linear guides

Part of the portfolio of Technische Antriebselemente are linear guides in various versions. Rollers guided along a rail offer a high degree of flexibility with a high power transmission. Furthermore, we offer ball bearing guides and precision shafts, which ensure high accuracy, as well as high-performance sliding guides, which, thanks to their outstanding technological properties, require no lubricants at all.

  • special solutions possible
  • High speed: up to 10 m/s
  • High acceleration: up to 500 m/s²
  • High force: up to 264 kN

Screw jacks

Screw jacks from Technische Antriebselemente can be driven via external electric actuators or or manual rotary movements and can be used as linear motion drives. Our screw jacks can move loads of up to 10 tons with positional accuracy as standard. A distinction is made between screw jacks with a rotating screw, in which a nut performs the linear motion, and screw jacks with a stationary shaft. In this variant, a nut installed in the gearbox drives the spindle linearly.

Loads between 2kN and 100kN can be realized as standard.
