Enzfelder GmbH for drive and lifting technology Manufacturers and international supplier

About us

1969

Mr. Enzfelder established a job shop in Vienna. Equipped with some machinery, the Enzfelder Company manufactured machine parts according to drawings. Within one year the number of employees rose to 3. The Enzfelder company started manufacturing threaded spindles and nuts according to drawings. Then the range of manufacturing was enlarged by toothed wheels, screw wheels and endless screws according to drawings.

1974

The company including the complete manufacture was relocated to Enzesfeld.

1975

The manufacture of spindle gears was launched. The company’s experience in the manufacture of trapezoid-threaded spindles, nuts, worm gear pairs and casings was a valuable basis for the construction. After many tests, the serial production of spindle gears was launched one year later. The result was a product characterized by a first-rate price-performance ratio. The product was distributed by dealers all over Europe.

1981

The planning and construction of small hydropower plants was launched to replace diesel generators. Environmental protection was not really a topic at that time, however, and the production was stopped in 1986.

1989

The Enzfelder GesmbH company replaced the Franz Enzfelder Company.

1990

Scissor-type lifting platforms and cable winches were added to the delivery program.

1991

Resilient spacer shafts were tested and added to the production range. At the same time, the telescopic spindle gear was developed. A patent for this principle was applied for and issued.

1993

The sale of spindle gears under their own name was launched and presented for the first time at the Hannover industrial fair. We have been approached with a variety of tasks and have provided solutions according to the customers’ needs ever since.

1994

In cooperation with our customers we produced the first bevel gears to specification.

1995

Spindle bearing arrangements were designed and included in the standard program.

1996

The Enzfelder company produced planet gear to specification for the first time.

1998-1999

The standard programs were enlarged. Additionally, bevel gears are manufactured in a standard design.

2000

The development of electric cylinders in standard design for very high loads (5-1000kN) was started. At the same time the telescopic spindle gears were refined to save the customer the guiding and locking devices. Since that time we have been able to offer telescopic cylinders, too.

2001

The development of electric cylinders was completed, and these cylinders were added to the standard program. At the same time the development and fabrication of cubic spindle gears for lifting loads between 2.5 and 150kN was started. These gears were added to the standard program as well.

2002

were extended and optimized the series of the electric cylinders. Further we provide an electronic 2D-3D product catalogue of the spindle gears, it makes it possible to integrate our products into your system.

2002-2003

We putted our new assembling and packaging hall, beside the manufacturing hall, in operation

2003

We increased our machinery by buying a CNC machine tool with 7 axes, brand AXA. That new CNC machine allows a precise machining of the screw jack housings in only two clamping.

2003-2004

The engineering started to use new 3-D CAD software, Solid Edge. That software enables our customers to integrate easily our drawings.

2004

We opened a sales office in France.

2004-2005

We started to design the high performance screw jacks HSG and we created a range of 10 different sizes.

2005

First participation to an exhibition in France: INDUSTRIE 2005 at Lyon.

2005-2006

We started to design a new range of telescopic screw jacks TSGLR. Today, these new telescopic screw jacks, with a more compact design, are used in the stage industry, in the aircraft industry, on train lifting equipments and in machine building.

2008

We replaced the tread grinding machine by a new CNC thread grinding machine, brand Mikromat.
