dryspin technology achieves greater efficiency, reduces noise and extends lifetime

dryspin is the new leadscrew drive technology developed by igus that enables engineers to achieve higher efficiency, quieter operation and longer lifetime. Typical applications for the new drive technology include automotive manufacturing, packaging and handling equipment.

When supplied with a leadscrew nut made of iglidur J, the dryspin drives are self-lubricating and maintenance free, as well as being light-weight and resistant to dirt, chemicals and humidity. By eliminating lubricants, the drylin leadscrews are suitable for applications in hygienic environments, such as those found in laboratory automation and medical equipment. The leadscrew nuts are also available in iglidur A180, which conforms to FDA guidelines for the food and drinks industry.

"Amongst the most innovative features of the drylin leadscrew drive is its optimised thread angle for longer life and enhanced efficiency," says Robert Dumayne, director, igus. "The dryspin technology employs obtuse thread angles instead of the acute angles found in standard symmetrical leadscrew drives - the result being less transverse force. In addition, the optimised radius thread design helps reduce the transmission of vibrations that can cause noise."
