drylin® lead screw technology
by igus®

drylin® lead screw technology

In the world's largest online shop for lead screws
The drylin® lead screw technology as well as the dryspin® technology are based on the principle of lubrication-free linear technology.  With specifications and shapes matching the plastic nut and lead screw, the drylin® lead screw technology and  the dryspin® technology guarantee an even longer service life and higher efficiency.


Reduce time spent on design and optimise the procurement process. Trapezoidal, high helix, and metric threads are available in more than 5,000 variants in the standard product range directly from stock. In addition, you can configure your special solution simply and quickly online.

The dryspin® technology

High efficiency and low wear

The patented dryspin high helix thread technology was developed by igus in 2015 and offers numerous advantages compared to conventional high helix threads. Due to the flat thread angle, they convert the exerted power efficiently into a translational movement. With properties and shapes matching the plastic nut and lead screw, dryspin thereby provides an even longer service life and more efficiency for high helix threads. Due to the rounded tooth geometry, the contact area between lead screw and nut is reduced, and the lead systems operate quietly and without vibration under load.
The larger spaces between the individual dryspin threads result in a higher share (factor 1.3) of tribologically optimised polymer in the threads. More wear-resistant material and higher levels of efficiency are crucial for a service life that is up to five times longer compared to conventional high helix threads.
Take advantage of our machining service - we manufacture ready-to-fit lead screws based on your requirements. For this, use our lead screw configurator or send us a drawing. We will then provide a quotation.
