Lead Screws
and Nuts

3D-printed lead screw nuts and drive nuts

Our 3D-printed lead screw nuts and drive nuts are created using our engineered composite plastic iglide® printing materials, which have been proven to last up to 50 times longer inside moving applications than standard 3D-printing materials. igus® engineers extensively test our iglide® plastics inside our 41,000-square-foot test lab based in Cologne, Germany to ensure that every 3D-printed component offers exceptional wear resistance comparable to injection-molded components. All igus® 3D-printed parts are low-friction, maintenance-free and self-lubricating. Metric and trapezoidal threads can be printed directly on the component from size M6 to TR6.
  • Various special iglide® polymers available for moving applications
  • 3D-printed parts with wear resistance comparable to injection-molded components or bar stock
  • Rapid production – even for complex parts
  • Easily upload and order your CAD file online
  • Necessary component adaptations and optimizations possible
  • Prototypes, special components and small batches – no minimum order quantity required!
