Drylin SHT leadscrew module in stainless steel for extreme environments

27 June 2017

igus has added a stainless steel version to its drylin SHT range of leadscrew modules.

The drylin SHT-ES is made entirely of 304 grade stainless steel, also known as V2A, making it ideal for use in the food and beverage industry, as well as for high temperature applications.
Designers can configure the leadscrew module using the standard online drylin SHT tool. Like all igus products, the drylin SHT-ES module is self-lubricating and therefore requires no maintenance. A wide range of stroke lengths is available, as well as drive options. Depending on the customer's requirements, the drive pin can also be provided with pins, grooves or key surfaces. Engineers can quickly configure and order a virtually custom assembly for delivery, ready for installation. 

The drylin SHT-ES module is available in four different installation sizes (shaft diameters) of 8, 12, 20 and 30mm. For the thread, users can choose between self-locking trapezoidal and high-speed high helix thread, available in pitches of 2 to 100mm with right-hand, left-hand or reverse threads. Users of the online configurator can choose, for example, between iglidur X, which makes the leadscrew module suitable in applications up to 200°C and are resistant to chemicals, and the food-grade material iglidur A180 for use in food and packaging technology.

For tougher environments, igus is currently developing a version of the drylin SHT-ES made of extremely corrosion-free and acid-resistant 316L grade stainless steel.
