dryspin®
lead screw drive
application examples

Lead screw drives are machine elements that convert rotary movement into linear motion. dryspin® lead screw drives are always based on self-lubricating plastic nuts, enabling long-lasting operation without external lubrication. dryspin® lead screw drive technology

is based on the principle of lubrication-free linear technology. The properties and geometries of the lead screw drives, which are tailored to the plastic nut and lead screw, along with the unique dryspin® technology guarantee an even longer service life and greater efficiency.
