Positioning and moving systems

for high-tech industries

Innovative complete solutions for highly precise positioning and moving tasks

Based on the solid foundation of machine beds made from natural hard stone and mineral casting, RAMPF Machine Systems offers innovative complete solutions for customer-specific positioning and movement tasks involving the toughest requirements in terms of precision and dynamics – from development and design to manufacture and assembly.

While the machine bed, linear technology, and drive and control technology were previously often developed and procured separately when developing machinery, plant, and equipment, a holistic (mechatronic) approach to development is now essential in order to meet the increasing requirements for highly dynamic and high-precision moving and positioning systems, while also reducing development times and costs.

Our technologies

Machine bed

  • More than 35 years of experience in designing, manufacturing, and assembling machine beds and moving machine bed assemblies using innovative materials
  • Designing and developing positioning and drive systems based on your requirements, using cutting-edge CAD and FEM tools
  • Optimum dimensional accuracy of the machine bed thanks to grinding, hand lapping, and precision assembly in climate-controlled production environments

Plus points

  • Specialist for integrating measuring and linear technology, drive technology, and control technology into highly dynamic moving systems

Drive technology

Linear drives

The right choice and control of drive systems is key to optimizing the technical parameters for the complete kinematic system such as short cycle times, high synchronization, positioning accuracy, and long service life

Plus points

  • Drive technology selected independently of manufacturer (linear drives, ball screw units, rack solutions)
  • Integration of complex, coordinated linear axes using defined interfaces in your machinery and equipment

Linear technology

Linear guides and profile rail guides

  • Mechanical components such as linear guides and profile rail guides are selected after careful consideration of the overall static, dynamic, and thermal behavior of the customer-specific positioning system

Plus points

  • Linear guides and profile rail guides selected independently of make and specific to requirements
  • Finishing with high-performance linear technology, energy chains, and bellows optimized for service life
  • High-precision assembly and measuring of linear guides and profile rail guides in climate-controlled production halls with cutting-edge measuring technology

Control technology

Control package

  • EPUTRONIC integrates complex control and safety technology into application-specific drive technology, thus achieving perfectly coordinated moving systems and positioning systems

Plus points

  • Selecting the best components for the control technology for positioning tasks in moving systems
  • Smooth interlinking of all development and manufacturing steps – from linear and drive technology to control technology
