QuickShaft® stands for high-dynamic, miniaturized, tubular linear direct drives with ironless technology.

They are the ideal drives for high-dynamic applications at small strokes and lower forces. We offer ready-to-use guide systems, positioning controllers, customized motor cables and supply units with the components.
For easy integration into customer applications, we deliver examples of circut drawings, accordingly ready configurated positiong controllers, emergency-stop concepts, as well as licence-free software tools.

QuickShaft® Servo Drives

QuickShaft® are directly driven, miniature, tubular servo drives with ironless technology. With an excellent performance/volume ratio, QuickShaft® drives are especially suited for applications with positiong taskes in the tightes of spaces.


  • tubular, dynamic electromagnetic direct drives with ironless technology
  • integrated, incremental measurement system, sensing of the drive magnets
  • one-cable technology
  • integrated plain bearing
  • positioning repeatability +/- 0,05 mm
  • peak force up to 28 N
  • max. stroke 120 mm
  • protection class IP20
  • long operational life


  • M12 connector type 'B'
  • direct cable outlet type 'Z', cables for use with cable chains up to 30 m
  • cable sets ready to use

Faulhaber® Positioning Controller
