Screw jacks

Lifting systems for various applications with standard screw jacks, worm gear screw jacks, actuators and precision screws for lifting capacities to 500 kN.

Screw jacks

NEFF spindle lifting elements for machine building (screw jacks).

ATB Automation supplies components in mechanics and Motion control technology. Spindle lifting elements, screw jacks,  are an important product group within the Mechanics group. With lifting forces of up to 500kN, there are solutions for various industries. The spindle lifting elements can be driven with a wide range of motors and drives from the Motion Control range of ATB Automation.

NEFF spindles and spindle lifting elements

The NEFF spindle lifting elements are high-quality products and have a long history. Wilhelm NEFF opened a mechanical workshop in Waldenbuch in 1905. Since the 1980s, the focus has been on spindles and spindle lifting elements.
