Lead screw nuts
Durable alternative to ball bearings
Easy to customize and maintenance-free systems with predictable service life
and various material options
drylin® lead screw systems from igus® are designed for maintenance-free operation and extended service life. The screws convert rotary motion into linear motion and are often used to provide actuation to a set of linear bearings. igus® plastic nuts are a superior alternative to ball screws in many applications, as they are self-lubricating for the duration of the service life. 85 percent of igus® products are shipped same-day, and 95 percent are shipped within 24 hours.
igus® offers a range of online tools to help users find the right lead screw system for their application requirements. The all-encompassing tools report suitable products based on entered parameters, predicted system service life and both 2D and 2D CAD models. Systems can also be individually configured, simplifying the design process. Final configurations can be saved or sent directly to the shopping cart.

Geometry with vibration-dampening radial preload for smoother operation
Special geometry and automatic adjustments for axial play reduction
Compact geometry for small installation spaces, identical in dimension to conventional metal bearings
dryspin® high helix thread technology has high efficiency due to the optimized thread angle. The rounded tooth geometry allows for quiet, vibration-dampening operation, and the asymmetry provides extended service life.
