Simply Precision

ess Mikromechanik GmbH, based in the German town of Stockach-Windegg, is in the excellent position of offering a wide range of airbearings.

ess Mikromechanik GmbH was founded in 1990 with the aim of developing and manufacturing aerostatic airbearing components and devices for the manufacturing industry, and in the specialised area of measuring technology.

The company’s first products were a high performance ultra-precision aerostatic scanner and an aerostatic table capable of accepting very heavy weights for measuring an assembling semiconductor objectives, aircraft engines and aerospace parts.

Today, ess Mikromechanik GmbH is a typical component supplier dealing with several industries, such as automotive, medical, aerospace, semiconductor and many others.

On our stock we have more than 3.000 different articles from the field of air bearing industries. The product range starts with rotational airbearings with a shaft diameter from 3 mm and moved up to more than 1,5 m diameter. The bearings can have a load capacity from more than 20.000 kg and an runout accuracy from less than 0,03 µm.

At linear stages we can produce stages with a travel range from some micron up to some meter. As well we are producing high end measuring and production airbearing based complete systems.

The technology in which the bearings are produced include all standard airbearing technology and also 5 ess Mikromechanik GmbH specific air bearing types.

Another field which grows up more and more in the last two years is the micro cutting technology. In which we produce high end parts for the semiconductor, automotive and medicine industries. These parts are mostly produced on own developed and produced high end machines, which are based on airbearing and hydrostatic bearing technology.

In our development department we develop customer specific systems and units, mostly also beased on the airbearing technology.
