We are the sole UK importer and distributor of lead screws by market-leading Swiss ball and lead screw manufacturer Eichenberger Gewinde. Lead screws are suitable for a variety of applications, and, for short strokes, are an ideal substitute for drive belts due to their low production costs.
In addition, lead screws are perfectly suitable as substitutes for hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. The lead screw design allows low-friction acceleration as well as free positioning and they operate without any secondary energy forces.
In certain circumstances, lead screws are an ideal alternative to trapezoidal or ball screws due to high efficiency and a significant cost-to-performance ratio.
