igus has added a new range of lead screw nuts made from the durable iglidur
J200 material to their lead screw systems available online as well as in the
catalogue. The new lead screw nut material extends service life three-fold with
superior wear-resistant properties. igus’ online shop allows the designer to configure
high helix, trapezoidal and metric threads online with the lead screw
configurator and predict the service life of the nut. In addition to the three
common lead screw materials, the designer can choose from nine different
lubrication-free and maintenance-free nut materials including the high
performance iglidur J200 material.
The self-lubricating lead screw drives are used in a wide range of
applications, including extendable platform steps on commuter trains, 3D
printers, and valve actuators and fittings in the chemical and process
engineering sectors. To address these diverse functions, the engineer can
configure their design online in the igus lead screw configurator,
choosing from a wide variety of drive systems and technologies. In addition to
metric threads, trapezoidal and high helix lead screw threads are also available,
with the latter capable of replacing toothed belt or pneumatic drives.
With more than 70 different lead screw pitches, 3 lead screw materials
and 9 different nut materials including the new iglidur J200, in 10 different
versions, igus offers the widest selection worldwide with more than 5,000 lead
In the igus test laboratory, the new lead screw nuts made of
high-performance iglidur J200 achieved a service life three times longer than
that of a standard material for nuts running on hard-anodised aluminium lead
screws. When used in combination with aluminium, this new nut material reduces
noise, dampens vibration and is lightweight.
Lead screw nuts made of high-performance iglidur J200 are used in train
and aircraft door systems, as well as applications in the handling and
automation sectors. Cylindrical or flanged lead screw nuts, which are also
suitable for use on high helix and self-locking trapezoidal threads, are
available from Treotham to order from stock.
