drylin® lead screw drives
application examples

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

lead screw technology is based on the principle of lubrication-free linear technology. With specifications and shapes matching the polymer nut and lead screw, drylin® lead screw technology and the dryspin® technology guarantee an even longer service life and efficiency.
