Featuring tribologically optimized plastic leadscrew nuts and hard anodized aluminum screws, new dryspin leadscrew options offer considerable weight savings, as well as the reduction of required maintenance and external lubrication, with increases in service life due.
A range of leadscrew diameters are available, ranging from 6 to 20 mm. Using asymmetric geometry to reduce friction, vibration and wear rates, dryspin leadscrews and nuts are an alternative to stainless steel options.
According to Stefan Niermann, head of DryLin linear technologies at igus GmbH, “aluminum is not only very light and corrosion free, but it also achieves extremely high wear resistance and low coefficients of friction due to the hard anodizing process.”
A wide range of leadscrew nut types are available, created from highly engineered and tested self-lubricating iglide materials, including anti-backlash options, and leadscrews available in a range of thread options. All leadscrew sizes previously only available in stainless steel are now available in rugged, lightweight anodized aluminum.
