High-helix lead spindle

Speedy, the high-helix lead spindle from Eichenberger Gewinde features a high resistance to wear, a low frictional coefficient and on top of this, is totally maintenance free. The rolled spindles are available with thread angles of 8 to 120° as well as various diameters and pitches. Since Speedy is also cold-rolled from a wide range of raw materials and can be combined with plastic or bronze nuts, it is possible to have tailor-made solution for any type of application. For example, the perfect combination of materials between a stainless-steel screw and a plastic or bronze nut provides the possibility of operation without lubrication (dry running). Another application example is for magnetic resonance tomography machines (MRT) in radiology. Speedy screws in aluminium are not influenced by magnetic fields and can therefore be installed in MRTs. They are placed in the drive unit of the contrast medium injector, which prevents from magnetic interferences.
