Applications using drylin® screw drives

Hygienic, maintenance-free, quiet

drylin® lead screw technology is self-lubricating, as stainless-steel or hard anodized aluminum screws are combined with tribologically-optimized iglide® plastic bearings. By eliminating lubrication, the highest hygiene requirements can be met. These features, as well as quiet operation and corrosion-resistance, ensure high performance and extended service life in applications including format adjustments, medical technology, bottling plants or 3D printing.

Typical industrial sectors and applications: Classic format adjustments and lifting applications can be implemented with the self-locking trapezoidal thread.
