German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering
German term or phrase:Rollengewindetrieb
One model of a press joining machine has a Kugelgewindespindel which I translated as a ballscrew spindle. The larger model has a Rollengewindetrieb for which I need to find an English translation. The information is limited because I am working from a chart showing the location of parts. I found a site listing the item among other drives (http://www.lintec-linear.de/products3.htm) but with very little additional information.
Thanks for any help
Explanation: Gewinde is a thread. Depending on the thickness of it it could be "spiral". So I think, the roller is mouned on a threded or spiral shaft wich turns and rotates the roller along with it. Spiral roller drive?
Explanation: The translation for Kugelgewindespindel is correct. According to Goetzel/Goetzel Dictionary of Material and Process Engineering, you can either see screw spindle or threaded spindle.
For Rollengewindetrieb I do not have an answer either, sorry! Could it be something like a roll threading drive?
Good luck, Beate
