More efficiency and less noise with drylin spindle drives

More efficiency and less noise with drylin spindle drives dryspin is the latest drive technology from polymer expert, igus. Thanks to their unique dryspin asymmetric geometry, igus' leadscrew-drives offer extended lifetime, higher efficiency and lower noise and are thus ideal for a variety of applications from laboratory automation to medical equipment.

Built with state-of-the-art lead screw nut material, iglidur J, igus' drylin leadscrew-drives are self-lubricating and maintenance-free as well as being lightweight and resistant to dirt, chemicals and humidity.

Amongst the most innovative features of igus' drylin spindle-drive is its optimised thread angle for longer life and enhanced efficiency; with obtuse angles - in place of the acute angles to be found in standard symmetrical spindle-drives - dryspin requires less transverse force. In addition, dryspin's round teeth design lowers noise levels and reduces vibration. To meet the needs of engineers and designers, drylin spindle-drives are always delivered to the customer in less than three days.
