Lead Screws and Slides

Lead screws and slides are exceptionally quick and they can achieve their fast moving speeds from low rotational speeds. Lead screws and slides are efficient and very smooth and quiet in operation, producing fast linear travel. Stainless steel and aluminium are the most common materials used for lead screws and slides. High wearing thermoplastic nuts are often added. Various threads are used. Lead screws and slides are suitable for a variety of applications. Due to their cost-efficiency, lead screws also a viable alternative for drive belts in short stroke applications. They can even be used as an alternative for hydraulic cylinders. Lead screws and slide allow low-friction acceleration and are extremely versatile.
