Uhing Rolling Ring Drive is ready for Industry 4.0
Uhing is the synonym for continuous development and innovation. This has been so for nearly 70 years. As early as in 1952, the company founder Joachim Uhing, by inventing the rolling ring drive, satisfied a user’s wish from the winding and traversing sector for the perfect linear drive. He launched the world’s first version on a plain round shaft. The world has changed since then. But Uhing’s approach remains unchanged.
Continuous adaptation to constantly changing industrial demands is the recipe for the success of Uhing’s rolling ring drive. In the 1950s, close cooperation with knitting machine manufacturers gave the decisive impetus to Joachim Uhing. The engineer recognised his customer’s wish for automating the reciprocating travel of a knitting carriage performed manually so far and came up with a trendsetting novelty that should prove to be successful in the long run.
