Helix Linear Technologies today unveiled its Ultra Miniature lead screw product line. Helix designed the new range of lead screws for applications that demand micron level positioning and impressively small envelopes. Helix is matching these new screws with their proprietary internally lubricated anti-backlash nut designs to produce a precision lead screw assembly with zero backlash and excellent lead accuracy.
The mini lead screws are an exciting addition to Helix’s product line because they enable design engineers to build actuation systems that are extremely repeatable and with zero positioning backlash. Helix’s smallest standard screw size in its Ultra Miniature product line is 1.5 mm and the largest screws are 4 mm diameter.
“Many of these new screw sizes have been developed for our customers building medical devices and automation systems for drones,” says Christopher Nook, CEO of Helix Linear. “We’re also the only lead screw manufacturer in the world that produces its own thread rolling tooling so we can manufacture virtually any screw size an engineer needs.”
Helix also offers all of its standard services for these lead screws.
