New additions to igus' leadscrew drive range
igus has introduced new products and line extensions to its range of linear drive systems. The leadscrews and nuts are dry running, corrosion resistant and maintenance free, enabling precise and accurate linear motion over a long service life.
drylin hard anodised aluminium leadscrews are very light in weight. They are non-magnetic and rust proof, making them suitable for applications including mobile devices, medical equipment, scanners, mechanical engineering and safety engineering. To compensate for manufacturing installation tolerances, a combination of a leadscrew nut and spherical bearing has been developed. This allows for angular errors that can occur when fitting attachment brackets and this leadscrew is perfect for rehabilitation and fitness equipment.
Trapezoidal leadscrews for the food and medical sector are now available in the new materials iglidur J350, that can reach temperatures up to 220ºC, and also FDA approved iglidur A180. Available in flange and plain versions, these leadscrew nuts have low coefficients of friction, low moisture absorption and very low wear rates. Also new for highly technical applications such as vision systems and laboratory equipment, are four smaller sized high helix thread leadscrews.
The dylin leadscrew range is said to offer a variety of thread types, to cover a range of applications and all of the trapezoidal nuts are produced from triboplastics. According to igus, they require no maintenance or lubrication and provide technical advantages such as repelling dirt and debris.
