Maintenance-Free Lead Screw Systems

Modular lead screw assemblies, customized for your specific requirements

Lead screw assemblies from igus® are designed for maintenance-free operation and offer an extended service life. Our lead screw nuts are designed with self-lubricating engineered composite plastic materials, eliminating the need for external lubricants and lead screw coatings. In addition to trapezoidal and ACME lead screws, we offer a proprietary high helix design that’s asymmetrical to our plastic nuts. This design helps optimize lifetime and offers higher efficiency.

You can easily customize your lead screws in 20 minutes or less with our lead screw configurator. Watch this video to learn how it works. We can also 3D print lead screw nuts at our North American headquarters in Rhode Island. We use our engineered plastic materials and SLS printer to create low-friction, durable parts. Calculate the expected service life of your lead screw assembly before installing it in your application as well.

White Paper: The ACME Lead Screw System

Download the Free White Paper Now

One of the most common lead screw geometries in North American manufacturing is the ACME lead screw system. Designed with a trapezoidal shape, a flank angle of 29 degrees and a higher pitch than fastening screws, ACME lead screws were made for applications requiring frequent positioning, including power transmission applications moving high axial loads. Learn about speeds and loads, lead screw geometry, nut materials, benefits of an ACME system, relevant industries and more.
