How does the production of a lead screw work? And what is the difference between the thread rolling and thread whirling manufacturing processes? To find out, we should first compare the two manufacturing methods of thread rolling and thread whirling.
Most linear bearings, whether with metallic balls, rolling elements, coating or bonded elements, cannot be reused because of their design. For the user this usually means ordering new linear housings. This results in costs for re-procurement and delivery times. Proper disposal is also an additional challenge. Many bearings must be disposed of in hazardous waste […]
Rotating and linear sliding are now possible at the same time with the drylin® W linear/rotary guide igus presented the innovation for the first time during the igus digital trade show 2020 as a study. The new product consists of a PRT-04 slewing ring bearing on a drylin W rail with a wide support of […]
New vending machines score points with functions such as contactless payment or efficient access control. They use modern data loggers to analyse customer preferences.
When threads are used in heavy-duty applications, they must meet many requirements. One of the most important aspects for heavy loads is the stability of the threads under high axial and radial loads. But does this also work with lead screw nuts made of polymer? Clear answer: Yes! The drylin lead screw technology development team has set itself the task of developing a robust alternative to the flange lead screw nut.
