igus® dryspin® big wheel application
Published:  11 November, 2015

In this week’s Video of the Week, igus® demonstrates its leadscrew drive technology, dryspin®. Ideal for laboratory automation, handling, automotive and medical applications, dryspin® has been developed with an optimised thread angle to enable engineers to achieve higher efficiency, quieter operation and longer lifetime.

Supplied with leadscrew nuts made of iglidur® J, the dryspin® drives are self-lubricating and maintenance free. This high performance polymer material allows for great media resistance on the spindle, for free and easy movement. The leadscrew nuts are also available in iglidur® A180, which conforms to FDA guidelines for the food and drinks industry.

To meet the requirements of engineers and designers, the dryspin® leadscrew drives are delivered to order within three working days.
