Screw drives are machine elements that convert a rotary motion into a transnational motion. drylin® screw drives are always based on self-lubricating plastic nuts and thus enable a life-long operation without external lubrication. This also makes them completely maintenance-free
The lead screw with trapezoidal thread or high helix thread remains dry during operation and thus offers many advantages: dirt cannot cling to lubricants. Problem-free use in the hygienic areas. Quiet operation with vibration dampening. Different thread types cover a wide range of applications.
