Small wheels for the world’s gears Breakthrough to worldwide markets From Eisenbach to Australia Gear wheels, counters and worm gears may sound small and modest. But if one looks at where, all over the world, these small wheels from the Black Forest drive things – and drive things forward – one soon recognises the modern, internationally oriented high-tech company of today. Business connections to Russia and Australia were already listed in the first order books. Franz Morat junior then travelled to the USA by ship in order to open up new markets. The company was by no means breaking new...

Revolutionary inventions Shutter releases The triggers and shutter releases for photography, with which the company was very successful during the 1920s and 1930s, were based on typical clock drives. Self-timers, pressure gauges, direction indicators In the first few years following the founding of his company, Franz Morat senior largely continued his previous activities: he produced pressure gauges, spring drives and counters, registers as well as gearwheels for the watch and clock industry. In the 1920s he expanded the range of products with timers and shutter releases for photography,...

Success due to precision and design Knitting machines, laboratory equipment, overhead projectors, customer-specific drives After the war the company principally produced gearwheels, screws and, from 1953, worm gears. Because, however, production at the works in Eisenbach had been heavily restricted due to the dis­ mantling of machines by the French occupation forces, Franz Morat junior felt he had no choice but to seek new business fields in the American Zone. He merged the medical technology company Hellige and a circular knitting machine producer to pro­ duce Hellige Morat & Co. GmbH (a...

We keep the world moving Geared motors; rehabilitation, mobility and medical equipment There was a small technical revolution in 1981 with the introduction of the “Compacta” slip-on geared motor. It accommodates the motor, drive and limit switch in the smallest of spaces so that it advanced to become what is still a very popular product in mechanical engineering. The “Mini” linear actuator ultimately impresses with its universal linear drive and integrated limit switch. As a result of customerspecific modifications, these geared motors also offer universal use – they are employed in sheet...

Renewable energies and e-mobility Sun and wind – the future belongs to renewable energies, something Framo Morat believes in passionately. This passion can be found in the transport lifts and pitch drives of wind turbines, as well as in the trackers for guiding solar modules. In the modules, worm gears, linear and rotary actuators ensure, for example, that the sunlight is always perpendicular to the solar cells. This allows module per­ormance f to be increased by up to 45%, depending on the technology and geographical location. All drive components are especially designed for use in sun,...
