Lead Screw-Driven Actuators with Shafts: HTS/HTSP

The drylin® HTS line of lead screw-driven actuators are guided by precision ground support shafts, available in multiple aluminum and steel alloys.  Unlike our SLW line of linear screw-driven actuators, the HTS products are available from size 8mm shaft diameter, to the large high-capacity 30/40/50mm shafts.  From the standard, lightweight machined aluminum housings, to the highly corrosion and resistant 300-series stainless the HTS series offers high performance.  The shaft guides are clean and self-lubricating, and allow dirt and debirs to apss through the system without build up.  The HTS products also offer a complete configurator, allowing customers to add machined lead screw features, accessories like motors, as well as instantly get a 2D drawing and a 3D model, and the ability to order online.


  • Lower cost than ball bearing actuators
  • Dry-running self-lubricating bearings and lead screw nuts
  • Shaft guides allow dirt to fall away form the system easily
  • Multiple shaft materials form low weight aluminum, to deflection-resistant steel and stainless alloys
  • Various lead screw leads available
  • Accessories like motors, hand wheels, sensors and more
