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.
Speedy High-Helix Lead Screws
Eichenberger high helix lead screws are both Speedy by name and speedy by nature. Never before have such high moving speeds been obtained at such low rotational speeds.
The Eichenberger Speedy has made this possible by using a helix pitch never produced before. High helix lead screws are made of two types of stainless steel and are formed by the cold rolling process. They are coupled with high wear resistant thermoplastic nuts (POM-C) in simple (standard) or preloaded designs.
Rondo Round Thread Lead Screws
Rondo round thread lead screws and nuts have been developed as a true alternative to Acme and trapezoidal threads. They deliver outstanding efficiency and quiet running due to the lead screws' round thread profile. In terms of performance, Rondo lead screws are almost twice as efficient as standard Acme or trapezoidal threads.
