Lead screws & assemblies that are maintenance-free

Modular lead screw assemblies, customized based on specific user requirements

Lead screw assemblies from igus® are designed for maintenance-free operation and extended service life. Lead screws convert rotary motion into linear motion and are often used to provide linear actuation to a set of linear bearings. igus® plastic nuts are a superior alternative to ball screws in many applications, as they are self-lubricating for the duration of the service life. 85 percent of igus® products are shipped same-day, and 95 percent are shipped within 24 hours.
