Product Portfolio
  • Mechanical components / Manual guides

  • Föhrenbach precision slide guides are available in two series with identical dimensions as dovetail slides or as roller bearing slides. We produce them in series in standard widths of 30 to 400 mm and lengths of 35 to 1,800 mm. Due to this modular system, an optimum version regarding technology and price can be supplied for virtually every problem.
      • Dovetail slides

      • The Föhrenbach dovetail guides are made of grey cast iron and of aluminium, but makes of other materials are possible, too. The play is adjusted by means of an adjusting bar. All types are equipped with greasing nipples and greasing grooves. All outside surfaces are ground and the guides milled fine.  Also on sale are one axe or multi-axe slide types that run on roller bearings. These are made of grey cast iron (GG 25) or of aluminium. Aluminium models are anodized black. Slides for higher loads can be delivered as reinforced execution. The Föhrenbach slide types that run on roller bearings run in prestressed, hardened and ground Vee-guides. Even under high loads they assure smooth running operation, free from play and guarantee an extremely precise lengthwise motion. As compared to guide rails (dovetail type) they enable exact and easy displacement of parts, free from play.
        Due to this modular system, an optimum version regarding technology and price can be supplied for virtually every problem:
      • Roller slides

      • Our slides that run on roller bearings, in single-axis or multi-axis designs, are supplied in the materials grey cast iron and aluminium. The roller bearing slides run in preloaded, hardened and ground Vee-guides. This ensures a smooth, zero-play and extremely precise longitudinal movement - even under high load. Slides which must be designed with T-grooves or higher rigidity can be produced in a
        reinforced version.

        Due to this modular system, an optimum version regarding technology and price can be supplied for virtually every problem:
      • Cross Slides

      • Our cross roller guide rails are freely interchangeable standard elements. Our guide rails allow the assembly of extremely rigid and precise linear guides without any play.


        • Able to carry high loads
        • running extremely smooth
        • require little space
        • long serviceable life

        Mounting instructions:

        When mounting the guide rails make sure the bearing surfaces have been machined in a parallel manner and are to the angle. The tolerances of the bearing and mounting surfaces shall conform to the process tolerances of the guide rails (standard quality). The prestress applied depends on the respective mounting conditions, on the rigidity of the assembled slide structure respectively. We recommend to apply a prestress equivalent to a value between 5 and 20 % of the maximum admissible load. However, the load carrying ability of the overall guide rail structure thus realized will, at any case, be reduced by the prestress applied.
      • Miniature roller slides

      • The miniature roller slides can be delivered either as open type or with end plates. The exterior part
        is made of aluminium, the interior part consists of hardened steel. With standard drilling pattern.
      • SVAN Dovetail Slides

      • This guiding system makes it possible to accurately position your products. Furthermore, you can fix it exactly at the desired place. The innovation lies in the backlash-free clamping, horizontal and vertical side misalignment ≤ 3 μm. Useful advantages: compact sizes and the possibility of adjusting and locking the guide by a hex screwdriver.

        Clamps permit a fast combination to 2 axis systems and/or 3 axis systems or the fitting of axis systems on a base plate.

    • Motorized precision slides with integrated linear motor

    • As internal development by Föhrenbach, the integrated linear motors are precisely adapted to the respective requirements and provide consistently high speeds and acceleration values.
        • Motorized precision slides PFL / PCL /PKL

        • The highest accuracy class “Ultra-Precision plus” impresses with an accuracy of 0.0005 mm, thus 0.5 µm. Due to the fact that the control unit of the Föhrenbach slides is compatible with the interfaces of almost all measuring systems, this extraordinary repeatability does not depend on a particular system or a specific provider.

                Rotary tables RT3G 630 – high dynamics, high precision, high loading capacity

                This direct driven rotary table RT3G 630 has particularly been developed for machine tool industry and assembly machines. It is characterised by its high precision, highdynamics and its high loading capacity. The rotary table is driven by a permanently excited 3-phase synchronous motor. The rotary plate and the housing are made of gray cast iron. To record the exact position and speed of the rotor and to commutate the motor an incremental measuring system with optical scanning has been integrated. Additionally to the seals, a blocking air connection offers protection against the permeation of dirt and humidity.

                Rotary table RT4A – high dynamics, high precision and extremly flat construction

                The rotary table RT4A 400 is an exceptionally flat rotary table with air bearings. The rotary table housing and the rotary plate are made of aluminium. The integrated direct drive and its low overall height assure the realization of applications that cannot be performed with conventional worm drives. The drive principle also offers high accelerations and short cycle times.

                Field of applications: Suitable as loading and unloading station, Pressing parts up to 2500 N

                Direct drive: Electronically commutated 3 phase synchronous motor with permanent magnetically excited rotor. The motor develops a high turning moment. By standard, the commutation is effected via measuring system.

                Bearing: The rotary table runs on a highly precise air bearing. If the compressed air supply is stopped, the rotary plate rests on the rotary table with very high load carrying capacity and rigidity.

                Processing centers, CNC - grinding machines, Tool machines, Laser processing machines, etc.

                Direct drive: Electronically commutated 3-phase-synchronous motor with permanent magnetically excited rotor. The motor develops a high torque up to revolutions zero. The
                intended liquid cooling prevents a warming up of the machine by the dissipated heat of the direct drive.

                Bearing: Linked up angular contact ball bearings guarantee a high rigidity and maximum load.
                A high concentricity is reached by special manufacturing processes.

                • Pressing axis PA 25 / 50 / 100

                • In addition the type Pa 100 has a hollow shaft. The installation of an additional rotation axis permits the angle positioning of pressing tools. The drive is made by service free, brushless torque motor. The force translation is made by ball screw spindle. The position control of the stamp is solved by an incremental, magnetic measuring system. In combination with appropriate force receivers a process control of < 1% of the maximum force is possible.
                  Without additional force receivers a process control can be realized with the current evaluation of the Torque motors with an accuracy from 3% of the maximum power.

                    • The Graphite milling centre F-UMG 803

                    • Unlike commonly used milling centres which can handle graphite, the F-UMG of Föhrenbach does not have to struggle with the law of gravity. It makes use of this law.
                      The reason: With our centres, guides, spindle and tool magazine are not located at positions where they are exposed to the graphite dust, but they are both fitted at the top and hermetically sealed. The axis system is located above the machining plane in the dust-free area. If dust occurs, the guides are therefore not affected. In a reliable manner, the media distributor keeps the cutter free of chips - even in deep cavities. The precisely directed air flow ensures a stable process and minimum wear. All graphite dusts produced when milling are extracted by suction downwards using a large-volume bell.
                      For this reason, the F-UMG requires only little maintenance and can fully exploit the advantages of the material graphite
