Smart machine elements for your efficient construction

Are machine elements Construction componentsthat are not only contained in machines, but rather can be found in every technical construction. Often they are as inconspicuous as they are important at the same time. If, for example, a seal fails, it can have a major impact on the entire machine or system. We'll bring you the latest Machine Elements before how Rolling and plain bearings, Linear Technology, Shock absorbers, shafts, Tools, Springs, seals, Controls and much more.

Brand new machine elements

The calculation of the machine elements is increasingly done online today. In our section Configuration you will find numerous innovations of such tools. Or go straight to our service area. There you will find apps and tools for machine elements, which often make your design or shopping easier for you online, much like Amazon. exceptions like Fasteners with z. B. Screws can be found in the department Connection Technology, Couplings, Brakes and Drive Elements in the field of drive technology. 

Machine elements for special industries

Special industries like Automotive industry, Renewable energies, Technical Building Services, Medical Technology, Microsystems Technology require specially designed developments and knowledge. Here we introduce you to the latest machine elements for these applications. 

  • A product development that makes everyday life easier for many people is the best reward for the designer. A prime example of this is the Rollikup wheelchair coupling from Teuto Inserv gGmbH. First developed on behalf of a wheelchair user, the coupling, which is as simple as it is ingenious, has developed into a successful product. Leave trailers, suitcases and much more...
  • Frenzelit offers a molded part made from the Novaform fiber gasket that prevents galvanic corrosion. It galvanically decouples surfaces from metals in vehicles. The molded part is a cost-effective and effective alternative to common corrosion protection such as painting.  
  • In 2005, elastic point bearings made from Getzner Synodyn were installed to protect the cinemas in the famous Grandberry Mall in Tokyo from disturbing noise and vibrations. According to long-term measurements, the vibration isolation still works almost unchanged 15 years later. And so, after the temporary closure of the area, Getzner received the order to do that too...
  • The drive unit for a special vacuum application in semiconductor production consists of an internally toothed stainless steel ball slewing ring with the dimensions 1230 mm x 1091 mm x 27,5 mm including a mounting plate and drive pinion. Rodriguez supplies this assembly from a single source as part of its customer-specific system solutions, Value Added Products.   

Machine elements for machines and systems

In the past, machine elements were exclusively mechanical components which, when put together in a construction, resulted in assemblies. Today, the individual components in mechanical engineering do not stop at Industry 4.0. In the mechanical elements more and more electronics or Measurement Technology a. The smart rolling bearing or the profile rail guide with path measurement lead to more intelligence in the machine elements. These are the new features:

From the tiny mini Rolling from a huge rolling bearing measuring several meters to a system solution: the portfolio Schaeffler Ball and roller bearings has solutions for every application - from machine tools, robotics and industrial automation to the food and packaging industry Wind Turbine or mobile work machines, just to name a few. These are getting stronger too digitized. Here we present the innovations:

High precision, short cycle times, dynamic and modular should be a roundtable be the z. B. transported the workpiece to its destination as a positioning system. In machine tools, handling systems, Measuring devices and other applications, it should also function quickly with high repeat accuracy. Below we give you an overview of the developments of various Manufacturers of rotary tables:

In the area of ​​precision bearings, the Rodriguez GmbH with their Kaydon “Realislim” Thin section bearingsn a key technology for the Aerospace available. These specialized rolling bearings contributed to the success of the Mars mission in 2021 by allowing NASA's Perseverance rover to carry out its tasks efficiently and reliably. The Precision ball bearings but are also suitable for other applications in the demanding industry.

A linear guide linear or rectilinear movements in machines and systems, robots or devices. Rollers, balls, sliding surfaces, air, oil films or electromagnets are used for this purpose. Below you will find information different manufacturers zu Roller guide, Ball bearing guide, Rail guide, miniature tour.

Schaeffler linear guide


If you ever fall into memory mode, you can remember previous developments of all types of machine elements here 2011 – 2018. Plug-and-play, service life and ease of maintenance were just some of the requirements that shaped the development. Exciting déjà vu and have fun remembering!

Maedler linear guide

The linear guides from Schaeffler not only enable low-friction movements to offer the highest possible efficiency when moving masses. Products are also becoming increasingly intelligent as a result of Industry 4.0. Equipped with the Durasense lubrication system, the linear guide is suitable, for example. B. for condition monitoring use. Applications can be found in automation, Robotic, Medical Technology, food technology as in mobile machines. We present you new products and applications here:

The one presented here Workholding is used to fix and hold a workpiece in devices, machine tools or machining centers. clamping jawcollet, Quick release, chipboard, Mandrel & Co. must work safely, precisely and reliably when milling, turning, grinding and other processing of workpieces. Below you will find New developments different manufacturers:

Norgren clamping technology


WeformaWeforma damping technology has developed damping cylinders that can be used flexibly for a large number of applications. With their WM-Z and WM-ZG series, an extensive range of hydraulic damping cylinders is available, which are suitable, for example, for the vibration decoupling of motors or in commercial washing machines and as rope tensioners.

The Icaros GmbH brings a new type of sports equipment onto the market. With the device, the company managed to combine fitness equipment and Virtual reality flight simulator. Anyone who climbs in can experience the dream of flying like Icarus from ancient times. But in contrast to the namesake and Greek myth, the developers made no compromises when choosing the right components and chose the Linear Technology the robust ones Bow guides the “Curviline” from Rollon .
