New to the igus range of linear drive systems are leadscrews and nuts which are said to be dry running, corrosion resistant and maintenance free.

The drylin hard anodised aluminium leadscrews are light, non-magnetic and rust-proof, making them suitable for applications including mobile devices, medical equipment, scanners, mechanical engineering and safety engineering.

To compensate for manufacturing installation tolerances, a combination of a leadscrew nut and spherical bearing has been developed which allows for angular errors that can occur when fitting attachment brackets.

Furthermore, trapezoidal leadscrews for the food and medical sector are now available in the new materials that can reach temperatures up to 220°C, and also FDA approved iglidur A180. These are available in flange and plain versions and feature low coefficients of friction, low moisture absorption and very low wear rates. Four smaller sized high helix thread leadscrews are also available for highly technical applications such as vision systems and laboratory equipment.
