Heavy-duty thread

Zoe Moser | 4. May 2020

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.
