DryLin® screw drives - applications

Screw drives are machine elements that convert a rotary motion into a translational motion. DryLin® lead screw drives are always based on self-lubricating plastic nuts, thus enabling a life-long operation without external lubrication.

Typical industrial sectors and applications: Classic format adjustments and lifting applications can be implemented with the self-locking trapezoidal thread.
