Stainless steel leadscrew module

03 July 2017

igus has introduced a stainless steel version of its drylin SHT range of leadscrew modules. Made entirely of 304 grade stainless steel, the V2A, is suited to use in the food and beverage industry.

Like all igus products, the drylin SHT-ES module is self-lubricating so requires no maintenance. A wide range of stroke lengths are available, as well as drive options. Depending on the customer's requirements, the drive pin can also be provided with pins, grooves or key surfaces. 
The drylin SHT-ES module is available in four shaft diameters of 8, 12, 20 and 30mm. For the thread, users can choose between self-locking trapezoidal and high-speed high helix thread, available in pitches of 2 to 100mm with right-hand, left-hand or reverse threads. Users of the company’s online configurator can choose, for example, between iglidur X, which makes the leadscrew module suitable in applications up to 200°C and are resistant to chemicals, and the food-grade material iglidur A180 for use in food and packaging technology.
