drylin® lead screw drives
application examples

Lead screw drives are machine elements that convert rotary movement into linear motion. drylin® lead screw systems are always based on self-lubricating plastic nuts, thus enabling long-lasting operation without external lubrication.  

The drylin® lead screw technology as well as the dryspin® technology are based on the principle of lubrication-free linear technology.  With specifications and shapes matching the plastic nut and lead screw, the drylin® lead screw technology and  the dryspin® technology guarantee an even longer service life and higher efficiency.
