Linear Screw Actuators: drylin® HTS

The drylin® product portfolio provides self-lubricating linear axes that are driven either by trapezoidal thread, steep thread or toothed belt. The user can choose a suitable individual solution from lightweight solid plastic units up to massive stainless steel solutions. In all systems, the stroke length is freely selectable and the drive implemented either via hand wheel or motor.


Main body made of stainless steel, aluminum, zinc or plastic


Self-lubricating through polymer bearings and polymer nuts


3 shaft materials


Carriages made of anodized aluminum or solid polymer
