igus® dryspin® performs well in both the wear test and the efficiency test


Upon a customer request, the motion plastics® specialist igus compared dryspin® lead screws with two competitive products with identical high helix thread dimensions. Both in a wear test and an efficiency test, the products intended for rail technology were tested for 100,000, 200,000, 400,000 and 630,000 cycles.

Wear comparison


Even after 630,000 cycles the igus® dryspin® lead screw showed significantly lower wear and a higher degree of efficiency.
