igus® dryspin® perfoms well in both the wear test and in the efficiency test


Upon customer request, the motion plastics® specialist compared dryspin® lead screws with two competitive products with identical high helix thread dimensions. Both in a wear test, as well as in an efficiency test the products intended for rail technology were tested for 100,000, 200,000, 400,000 and 630,000 cycles.

Wear comparison  


Even after 630,000 cycles the igus® dryspin® lead screw showed significantly lower wear and a higher degree of efficiency.
