Columbus McKinnon's promise of quality:

Drive Technology Project Planning

Pfaff-silberblau accompanies its customers through the entire project planning process in the field of drive technology and linear technology. The basis for this is our system know-how, which is based on decades of experience. This includes the initial consultation as well as the constructive implementation and commissioning as well as the data visualization.

We offer all project planning services from a single source: Our customers appreciate this reduction in workload.

Drive Technology System Solutions

Companies in the mechanical and plant engineering sector are ordering individual components from their suppliers less and less frequently. Increasingly, they are ordering entire assemblies that are assembled and put into operation by the contractors themselves. The advantages for the OEM in the commissioning of complete systems are:

Drive technology for the steel industry

In steelmaking and other heavy industries, drive technology is expected to lift, move and precisely position heavy loads under extreme adverse conditions. This requires specific solutions and technical know-how.

Columbus McKinnon Engineered Products, which has been one of the world's leading suppliers of special drive technology components for steelmaking and heavy industry for many years under the Pfaff-silberblau brand, offers both.
