dryspin® lead screw technology is based on the principle of lubrication-free and maintenance-free linear technology. The specifications and geometries of our lead screw technology, which are matched to the polymer nut and lead screw, guarantee efficiencies of up to 82% and a service life that is up to 30% longer than conventional lead screw drives.
Reduce time spent on design and optimise the procurement process for your lead screw technology. Trapezoidal, high helix and metric threads are available in more than 5,000 variants in the standard product range directly from stock. In addition, you can configure your special solution simply and quickly online.

The patented dryspin high helix thread technology was developed by igus in 2015 and offers numerous advantages compared to conventional high helix threads. Due to the flat thread angle, they convert the exerted power efficiently into a translational movement. With properties and shapes matching the plastic nut and lead screw, dryspin thereby provides an even longer service life and more efficiency for high helix threads. Due to the rounded tooth geometry, the contact area between lead screw and nut is reduced, and the lead systems operate quietly and without vibration under load.
The larger spaces between the individual dryspin threads result in a higher share (factor 1.3) of tribologically optimised polymer in the threads. More wear-resistant material and higher levels of efficiency are crucial for a service life that is up to five times longer compared to conventional high helix threads.
