Our power lead screws deliver the reliable and efficient conversion of rotary motion into linear motion to provide extremely high accuracy and continuity within your application. Matara stocks a range of lead screws, including trapezoidal lead screws designed for industrial and precision-based applications. If you are looking for lead screws, choose Matara as your supplier.
What are power lead screws?
Power lead screws are used within motion control devices to convert rotary movements into linear motion. This occurs through the lead screw coming into direct contact with threaded bars of metal and a threaded nut within the device. When this occurs, it generates sliding friction, and the rotational movement will then turn the screw and move the nut along in a linear motion.
Here at Matara, we stock a range of power lead screws, including trapezoidal power lead screw options. We design our trapezoidal lead screws on a Carbon Steel unit that we manufacture from EN10084 C15E-1-1141, which has a surface hardness after rolling of 160-180HB. We also offer alternative standard steels and stainless steel INOX-AISI-304 and 316. Nuts are available in a variety of materials from steel through to bronze, brass and plastic.
Advantages of Lead Screws
There are many advantages of using lead screws within your applications. Some of the most common include:
High load-carrying capacity
Compact with minimal parts
Easy to design into a system
Smooth operation & quiet function
Low maintenance & longer service life
Which applications are power lead screws typically used in?
Power lead screws can be used for both vertical and horizontal movements. They also operate manually or motorised depending on the application they are working within. They are ideal for use within instrument grade applications.
When selecting a power lead screw, the key things to consider are the speed, thrust, accuracy, and repeatability of the application. Typical examples of these include the following:
