Innovation and quality
are what drives us.

The Peiseler portfolio encompasses a range of drive and positioning solutions optimised for various applications and requirements. With many years of expertise under our belts, we've got a talent for identifying the right technologies for your product.

Whether we deploy a solution we've designed and patented in house, or an existing technology that we've adapted and developed, our drives are fine-tuned to perform in harmony with your machine. All of our drives offer their own unique benefits, but there is one fact that unites them all: They all achieve the highest standards of quality, performance and precision.

We also modify our drives based on our customers' individual project specifications – enabling us to find the right solution for any application.

Drive type

Direct drive

Direct drives allow highly dynamic and continuous movement and with this, a constant flow of new machining concepts. Peiseler took the lead in this technology as early as 1997 with the development of the world's first subdevice with a direct drive, just as it did with the first two-axis rotary tilt table with a direct drive in 2001. Today, we are in the technologically leading position to offer you direct drives for turning operations in S1 continuous milling. Increasing machine speed while maintaining bearing rigidity at a level that is also suitable for milling enables us to combine turning and milling applications. This allows Peiseler's development engineers to use machining centres more flexibly. Direct drives use very sensitive control technology and place high demands on energy supply.

The benefits for you

  • Highly dynamic, precise control

  • Speed variability

  • Simultaneous machining, turning and grinding all possible

  • Symmetrical design reduces space requirements

  • Low-maintenance

  • Not susceptible to overload and crashes

Drive type

Galaxie® drive

This redesigned drive train is primarily used in swivel axes in our two-axis rotary tilt tables up to ZASG 400 size. In this innovative concept, the torsion and backlash-free Galaxie® drive is combined with a torque motor, optimising the value for money of your machine.

Ideal for five-axis machining of lightweight structural components. A spring-actuated active clamp secures the axis and ensures that it is brought to a controlled stop in the event of a fault.

The benefits for you

  • Reduced heat generation across the entire machine thanks to high level of efficiency

  • Reducing the starting torque enables us to use smaller drive components, which means that the control cabinet takes up less space

  • The weight reduction of around 26% compared to direct drive axes results in a more dynamic performance when used on a linear axis

  • All of this results in a long-term reduction in the total cost of ownership

Drive type

Worm gear drives

Peiseler uses three-piece worm gears, a well-known design developed by Ott. These gears consist of a worm wheel and a two-piece worm, the shank worm and hollow worm. During assembly, we adjust the gear so it is backlash-free. Readjusting the worm during its service life is simple with a commercially available mounting tool. The design advantages are a compact gear ratio, high mechanical precision and the control's excellent regulatory quality. Heat limits the duty cycle.

The benefits for you

  • Simple commissioning/easy installation

  • Easily adjustable worm gear

  • Maximum drive moment and low backlash

  • Self-braking (safety feature)

  • Cost-effective solution for positioning applications

Drive type

Pinion drives

Peiseler offers subdevices with preloaded gear sets with spur or bevel gearing. The available space determines the design; usually a multi-stage solution of one of the two alternatives. Compared to the worm gears, gear drives are more complex due to the multi-stage design. Elimination of backlash is achieved by mechanically or electronically tensioning two drive trains. The high torques, speeds and duty cycles are advantageous. Based on their characteristics, gear drives are classified between worm gears and direct drives.

The benefits for you

  • No cooling required

  • Better dynamics than worm gears, higher torque density than direct drives

  • Combines the technical advantages of worm gears and torque motors

  • Ability to adjust control stability of drive train

  • Backlash-free, so suitable for simultaneous machining

Drive type

Hirth couplings

Peiseler designs and produces lifting and non-lifting Hirth couplings for indexing processes. NC operation is not possible with this technology. Hirth couplings transfer very high loads, particularly tangential moments. They have a very high positioning repeatability. In the non-lifting variant, the rotary tables are designed with an axially fixed bearing. With this special design, the face plate remains in position axially during all movement sequences. Designs with a lifting Hirth coupling lift the face plate by a few millimetres for turning.

The benefits for you

  • Various spacings available up to 360 teeth/1°

  • Manufactured in house and can be adapted to any installation space

  • Form-fitting for maximum mechanical positioning precision & repeatability

  • Maximum rigidity in drive train

  • Combined with generously proportioned cast housings for an optimum damping performance

  • All core assemblies from a single source!

We have developed low-friction seals in rotary manifolds to meet the demands of the mould-forming industry and high-speed axis applications. We work with our suppliers to develop special lines of seals with an optimum sealing performance. Coated manifold shafts withstand the loads of the dynamic, continuous movements common in free-form surface production.

The benefits for you

  • Developed in house/maximum design flexibility

  • Can be adapted to suit any requirements

  • Nested design available

Hirth couplings

Peiseler designs and produces Hirth couplings as a component of subdevices, spindles and as a centring coupling for shaft force transmission. Our product portfolio includes Hirth sets made of two rings for the lifting mode of operation and three rings for the non-lifting mode of operation. High-quality, heat-treated steels allow us to integrate bearing running surfaces or other design elements. Peiseler primarily delivers Hirth couplings according to customer specifications.


Active clamp

Our patented spring-preloaded, hydraulically actuated axial active clamp reliably grips the axis in a matter of milliseconds. It is ideal for use as a safety clamp in horizontal axis configurations, and is operated at a release pressure of 120 bar. The material combination is designed to ensure a long service life and to prevent fretting corrosion, minimising maintenance costs and reducing downtime.


Passive clamp

Our highly responsive, patented axial clamp is designed for low distortion. The clamp – which activates with a pressure of 60 bar and is open when de-energised – reduces the span-to-span time. Thanks to its design and targeted force flow, the clamp increases the rigidity and damping capacity of the subdevice, which in turn promotes a longer tool life and protects the surface of the workpieces. The material combination is designed to ensure a long service life, minimise maintenance costs and reduce downtime.

Pneumatic clamp

All machine tools provide access to the pneumatic systems. Thanks to our specially developed operating principle, our pneumatic clamps boast friction torques that are virtually identical to those of hydraulic clamps.

Subdevices with 6 bar pneumatic clamping can be used in any application with a compressed air supply, making them the number-one choice for customers looking for an easy and clean retrofit solution.


Direct path measurement systems

Our angle measurement systems – usually connected directly to the face plate – reduce the risk of positioning errors and increase repeatability for even better results. The systems are available in various designs and with different levels of precision to cover a wide range of applications. We can develop a solution specifically for your application to ensure optimum value for money.

Design principles

When we're designing our subdevices, we leave nothing to chance; everything we do is based on our long-held principles of maximum quality and precision.

Design principle

Grey iron housings

Our generously proportioned housings are designed for rigidity and outstanding damping capability to ensure the best possible surface quality for your workpiece.  In dynamic applications, we can optimise the components in house based on FEM calculations. A reduced mass inertia allows for more dynamic axis designs, shortens cycle times and reduces the power consumption of the drives. We always focus on your key requirements.

Design principle

Axial-radial bearings

Axial-radial cylinder roller bearings act as the interface between the workpiece and the housing. We leave nothing to chance; all of our bearings are sourced from well-known manufacturers or are produced in house. ​

Thanks to their linear contact design, our cylinder rollers possess high rigidity and excellent damping properties. Our long-life, maintenance-free bearings permanently increase machine availability.

Design principle

Special bearings

We use a variety of bearing designs and configurations for special applications. Our experienced engineers will design your bearings and perform calculations based on your requirements – so you can rest assured that you've always got exactly the right bearing technology for your process. Our expertise and carefully selected components give you the competitive edge.
