Cold-rolled reliability in the area of high voltage

Electricity is, figuratively speaking, the lifeblood of our modern society and economy. Without it, nothing is possible. 

Circuit breakers are essential for the safe operation of our power supply. Among others, their task is to turn the entire output of a power plant on and off (in the gigawatt range) and to direct voltages up to 1,500 kV. The cold-rolled Carry ball screw from Burg (CH) plays an extremely important and responsible key part in this.
